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.
The authors are top leaders in the field of computer simulation modeling of soil and groundwater phenomena. The results of their computer simulations are astonishingly encouraging: the goal of elevating the ground surface is achievable; the cost is not tremendous; the risks seem inexistent.
