The EnviroComp Institute has pioneered the production of electronic books in environmental sciences. This format allows the incorporation of features not available in printed books, such as hypertext, text search capabilities, Internet pointers, high-resolution color pictures, and animations.
Venice Shall Rise Again - Engineered Uplift of Venice through Seawater Injection
This book is authored by Profs. Gambolati and Teatini who, for decades, have carefully studied the geology and the groundwater phenomena in the region surrounding the city of Venice in Northeastern Italy. They discuss a recently proposed, daring, and innovative engineering approach that could create a substantial elevation of the ground surface of the region and, consequently, a mitigation of the periodic flooding of the city.
