Studio T.S.T. managed the Session dedicated to drone survey systems at GeoSub 2015 International Congress
The third GeoSub International Congress, took place in Trieste, between 13 and 14 of October 2015. It was organized by Dipartimento di Matematica e Geoscienze of the Università di Trieste, in collaboration with OGS, Associazione Italiana per lo Studio del Quaternario – AIQUA, Associazione Italiana di Geografia Fisica e Geomorfologia – AIGEO and ENEA. More than 100 researchers arrived from Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and France, have participated to deepen the link between marine geological researches and underwater exploration. One of the geologists of the Studio Geologi Associati T.S.T. has been member of the scientific Board of the Congress and convener of a session dedicated to the use of UAV/AUV Systems in coastal research and monitoring.
The Session has shown contributions by:
- Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale, Università di Firenze
- Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra, Università di Firenze
- INGV Roma (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia)
- Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra, Università di Palermo
- Facoltà di Ingegneria ed Architettura, Università UniKore di Enna
Moreover, the member of the Studio Geologi Associati T.S.T. presented in the session called "Relative sea-level changes in the coastal and underwtaer area based on geomorphological, sedimentological and biological markers", the preliminary results of a research project that he carried out together with Dott. Fabrizio Antonioli (ENEA), concerning the analysis of morphological markers found along the coasts of Tindari promontory in north eastern Sicily.
The title of presentation was:
"SWIM SURVEY OF THE ROCKY COASTS OF TINDARY PROMONTORY (SICILY)"
Final results of this research will be part of a larger work that will analyze several sites, located in Mediterranean area, showing the same morphology preserved along the coast of Tindary, and they will be published in a special volume of Quaternary International.
