Research subjects

  • Geophysical study to individuate the relation between recent tectonics and inherited structures (Adria Plate and continental margin of Antarctica).
  • Correlation from halokinetics features to up-ward fluid migration (pre-salt fluids) in Mediterranean Basins from analysis of  multichannel seismic profiles and morphobathymetry data (seepage/venting structures).
  • Study on the development of mounds, potential biological build-ups in a geological dynamic environment, influenced by gas/fluids (Adriatic Sea and Otranto Channel) and gas/gas hydrate presence (circum-antarctic basins), using geophysical methods.
