HIETE Project

HIETE aims to develop an interdisciplinary experimental – modelling approach to quantify the ongoing consolidation / subsidence process in Holocene deposits in relation to current sedimentation and SLR rates in order to reconstruct the Holocene evolution of the salt marshes of the Venice lagoon and predict the feedback on their resilience in the near future.

BRIC-INAIL Asbestos Call 

The project aims at the evaluation of the environmental hazard related to the presence of fibrous minerals (NOA, Naturally Occurring Asbestos) in natural settings. The project will focus on three fibrous minerals originated in different geological contexts: fibrous antigorite from the serpentinites of the Voltri Massif (Liguria); fibrous tremolite from the serpentinites of the Calabrian-Lucanian Apennines (Basilicata); fibrous fluoredenite from the Pleistocene volcanic rocks of Biancavilla (CT - Sicily), at the foothills of Mount Etna.

The project "TREZZE, TEGNUE AND MARINE ENVIRONMENTS OF NORTHERN ADRIATIC SEA: MANAGEMENT PROPOSALS (TRETAMARA)" aims to capitalize on previous knowledge, to enhance the best management practices, drawing up a document that supports the drafting of the management plans of the coastal and marine SCI areas, contributing to the harmonization of the plans of management at Northern Adriatic level. The project would like to propose national and transnational guidelines for an integrated management of the marine-coastal habitat and a high ecological value also through targeted actions with highly innovative content.

H2020 Project GECO (Geothermal Emission Gas Control)

GECO (Geothermal Emission Gas Control) is a European project co-funded for four years (01/10/2018 - 30/09/2022) by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, the Framework Program for Research and Technological Development 2014 - 2020.

The project aims to study and develop, at industrial level, the production of geothermal energy with zero emissions. Geothermal fluids can naturally contain small variable amounts of CO2 and H2S that, if released into the atmosphere, can contribute negatively to the climate change.

Scientific coordinator IGG-CNR: Chiara Boschi (chiara.boschi(at)igg.cnr.it).

IGCP 663 - IM2LSC project

The International Geoscience Programme approved the project IGCP 663 “Impact, Mechanism, Monitoring of Land Subsidence in Coastal cities (IM2LSC)” aiming to bring together worldwide researchers to share expertise on subsidence processes typically occurring in coastal areas and cities. IGCP 663 plans to research the impacts of human activities and sea-level rise, hydro-mechanism and monitoring methods of land subsidence in coastlands with special focus on coastal cities of the less developed countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
