Sedimenti di Mario Capriotti

The sea plays a key role in everyday life both directly and indirectly. Consider, for example, its influence on the climate and on both summer and winter temperatures, on tourism, on fishing and the important natural resources it contains, like oil and minerals for example. The sea has always had an important role in history. The Mediterranean sea, the “Mare Nostrum” of the ancient Romans, for example, was for centuries the cradle of civilization. Indeed the greatest civilizations of the ancient world emerged, flourished and waned on its coast. It has also been the most widely used route for trade and cultural exchanges between East and West for centuries. On the other hand, the sea is also a huge economic resource. There are so many issues discussed on the subject of the sea, ranging from history to geology, from hydrology to marine engineering, to ecology etc. Hence the need to protect this resource, which must be used wisely. In this respect the technical and scientific contribution to the protection of this resource is vitally important. Therefore some research activities or support activities for local and regional authorities on the issues of coastal erosion and anthropic interventions have been highlighted, with particular attention to very vulnerable areas, like protected marine areas. The scientific contribution to solving the problems of the sea resource is certainly important and also supports the decisions the public bodies have to make for planning the costal territory. ( from the text by Prof. Michele Mossa)
