Obiettivi formativi

Aims
To provide knowledge on the major geological hazards in marine ad coastal environment, which are caused by geological processes that change dramatically the environmental conditions and present severe threats to coastal populations, offshore and onshore properties and offshore built infrastructures.

Contenuti

Contents
The course will provide basic knowledge about the use of innovative marine technologies to identify the marine geohazards and inherent risks and our ability to deal with them
