PRINCIPALI TEMATICHE DI RICERCA
- Intruzione marina in acquiferi costieri eterogenei;
- Processi di ricarica e deflusso in mezzi porosi, fratturati e carsificati;
- Interazioni tra corpi idrici superficiali e sotterranei in acquiferi porosi;
- Contaminazione microbica in acquiferi carbonatici fratturati e carsificati
- Protezione degli acquiferi
In tutti i casi, la ricerca viene svolta utilizzando un approccio multidisciplinare (indagini idrogeologiche, geochimiche, geochimiche-isotopiche e biomolecolari).
MAJOR RESEARCH INTEREST
- Seawater intrusion in heterogeneous costal aquifers;
- Recharge and flow processes in porous, fractured and karstified media;
- Interaction between surface- and ground-water in porous aquifers;
- Microbial contamination of groundwater in fractured and karstified carbonate aquifers;
- Groundwater protection.
In all cases, the research has been and is carried out through multidisciplinary approaches, merging hydrogeological, geochemical, isotopic and biomolecular investigations.
