Laser scanner and photogrammetrical surveying along the railway line Roma-Formia-Napoli

Terrestrial laser scanner survey of the slopes and rocky walls above the railway line Roma-Formia-Napoli, for the detection of potentially unstable volumes on the slopes and the structural and geomechanical characterization of the rock mass. A helicopter photogrammetric survey has been performed to produce orthophotos, detailed...

Glaciological and climatic evolution of the Croce Rossa glacier

The Croce Rossa Glacier (Viù Valley , Western Alps) is a small glacier hanging over a hydroelectric reservoir. The following parameters are monitored since 1998: net mass balance, surface displacements, temperature monitoring at the ice-rock interface, monitoring of ice volume change through comparison of multi-temporal aerial...

Application of Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) to assess landslide hazard and plan mitigation strategies along railway corridors in Central Italy

development of an original methodology based on MCA (Multi Criteria Analysis) approach, aimed at assessing landslide hazard along about 400 km of railway lines and supporting decision-makers in defining the most appropriate mitigation measures and planning their implementation. Basing on an ad hoc survey (airborne lidar...
