On the 20th of September we concluded the installation of a limnological floating station on Lake Garda.
The station is located in front of Manerba, in the southern-western side of the lake, and is moored at a 100m-deep point. It is measuring at 1/min frequency wind speed and direction, air temperature and humidity, net total long wave radiation, water temperature at 19 depths between 0 and 99m, and dissolved oxygen at 99m depth. Details of the instruments are provided at: http://hydraulics.unibs.it/hydraulics/stazione-galleggiante-di-manerba/
The real-time data will be available soon on the web.
On 29th of May 2019 the Environmental Hydraulics class visited the irrigation system managed by Consorzio di Irrigazioni Cremonesi.
In questi giorni sulla stampa locale ha fatto molto discutere la comparsa, la mattina del 27 Aprile, di una macchia nella parte nord del lago. Tale evento fornisce un’occasione per gettare uno sguardo sul complesso campo delle correnti del Lago d’Iseo e per apprezzare l’importanza di un costante monitoraggio al fine di comprendere gli eventi che interessano il lago. A questo link http://hydraulics.unibs.it/hydraulics/il-monitoraggio-del-lago-diseo/osservazioni-di-fenomenti-di-interesse/ si mostrano e commentano i dati ripresi dalle nostre stazioni di misura per fornire una chiave interpretativa, molto semplificata, di quanto accaduto.
On Friday 18 May 2008 the Environmental Hydraulics class visited the irrigation system managed by Consorzio di Irrigazioni Cremonesi.
On Thursday 10th of May, Manerba hosted the 2nd edition of the workshop Garden (Promoting research on Lake Garda by sharing scientific experiences developed in other lakes), organized by Università di Brescia and Università Cattolica. Scientists of different disciplines (physical limnology, atmospheric physics, ecology, remote sensing), professionals, and public officers, met to share the experiences developed in the lakes of the alpine and pre-alpine area, as well as to discuss about future directions of the scientific research on Lake Garda.

Prof. Steven Chapra from Tuft University, Boston, USA, is visiting Professor at DICATAM, guest of the hydraulics group. He will deliver a set of seminars on ecological modeling of lakes within the Environmental Hydraulics course and will collaborate on the research activities regarding the sediments-water interaction in Lake Iseo.
31 May 2017: Presentation of the school project ISEO at the high school Istituto Antonietti. All the classes that next year will be involved in the dissemination activities within the ISEO project funded by Fondazione Cariplo were present and had the unique occasion to meet one worldwide expert of lake modeling, Prof. Steven Chapra from Tuft Unversity, Boston, talking about his experience on the restoration of the Great Lakes.
Prof. Bernard Laval from University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, will be visiting Professor at DICATAM, guest of the hydraulics group. He will deliver a set of seminars on physical limnology and will collaborate on the research activities regarding the hydrodynamic of deep lakes.
Marco Pilotti has been appointed to serve as an Associate Editor for the American Society of Civil Engineers Journal of Environmental Engineering. This is a great honour in the year when this important Journal is completing out its 60th year of operation, which is being celebrated with a Special Anniversary Issue.
Christo’s floating pier has been completed 10 minutes ago. This is going to be an art masterpiece but it will be beneficial to Lake Iseo only if people in Italy and abroad will understand that this lake needs greater attention, now and in the future ! It is of paramount importance to join effort to find out a way to revert this lake to oligotrophy before it is too late.
