Results of a PSInSAR™ project carried out by the Regional Agency for Environmental Protection (ARPA) in Piemonte Region (Northern Italy) are presented and discussed. A methodology is proposed for the interpretation of the PSInSARTM data at the regional scale, easy to use by the public administrations and by civil protection authorities. Potential and(More)
The article reports the challenging work of 3D surveying and accurately modeling the " Tre Cime di Lavaredo " , often considered the icon of the Dolomites. They fully represent, with their shapes and colors, the concept itself of the UNESCO's site. The 3D recording is based on a fusion of oblique airborne and terrestrial laser scanning, in order to survey(More)
European Alpine glaciology has a long tradition of studies and activities, in which researchers have often relied on the field work of some specialized volunteer operators. Despite the remarkable results of this cooperation, some problems in field data harmonization and in covering the whole range of monitored glaciers are still present. Moreover, dynamics(More)
It is impossible, in high-dose irradiation, using only one physical dosimeter, to get any valid information to quantify biological damage to subjects, even if it's possible to measure skin-dose with great accuracy. Radiosensibility changes from one subject to another, thus it's necessary to consider some specific biological parameters to evaluate physical(More)
Differential Interferometric SAR (DInSAR) time-series techniques can be used to derive surface displacement rates with accuracies of 1 mm/year, by measuring the one-dimensional distance change between a satellite and the surface over time. However, the slanted direction of the measurements complicates interpretation of the signal, especially in regions that(More)
We study land subsidence processes and the associated ground fissuring, affecting an active graben filled by thick unconsolidated deposits by means of InSAR techniques and fieldwork. On 21 September 2012, Ciudad Guzmán (Jalisco, Mexico) was struck by ground fissures of about 1.5 km of length, causing the deformation of the roads and the propagation of(More)
