OGS, Geophysics
Scientific Activity: 

Seabed mapping and sub-seafloor seismic imaging as tools to analyse sedimentary and tectonic processes occurring along active and passive continental margins in several areas of the Mediterranean Basin, with a particular interest in submarine geomorphologies that may represent potential marine hazards:  i.e. slope failures, erosional submarine canyons, fluid/gas seeps, seismogenic faults.
