Lake Iseo on Hydrolink!

Lake Iseo on Hydrolink!

The last issue of Hydrolink, the primary magazine of the IAHR community, is dedicated to hydraulic research dealing with deep lakes. The articles of this issue of Hydrolink are a call for action to address the threats to deep lakes resulting from climate change and increased nutrient loads from various human activities. An overview of several studies addressing these issues in Lake Iseo in Italy is also present, including our research activities! On the cover, the floating station managed by our hydrulic group.

Prima simulazione del moto ondoso generato dalla caduta di una frana nel lago

Prima simulazione del moto ondoso generato dalla caduta di una frana nel lago

Il lago d’Iseo non è nuovo agli eventi di questi giorni e in passato è stato già interessato da eventi franosi che hanno avuto effetti non trascurabili sulle proprie sponde. Già dall’inizio di Marzo abbiamo fatto alcune simulazioni preliminari che fanno comprendere come potrebbe svolgersi la propagazione delle onde impulsive conseguenti al possibile crollo della frana di Tavernola.

New floationg station on Lake Garda

New floationg station on Lake Garda

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.

Recenti osservazioni sul lago d’Iseo

Recenti osservazioni sul lago d’Iseo

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.

Garden 2018

Garden 2018

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.

“Why should we care about lake Iseo?”

“Why should we care about 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.
