Terra Solida and innovation: seminar on hydrogeological risk

On 23 January in Bra (Cuneo) highly topical and interesting meetings and conferences on extreme natural phenomena and the slope arrangement

Solid Earth focuses once again on innovation with a seminar on hydrogeological risk , slope arrangement.

The meeting, organized by theOrder of Engineers of the Province of Cuneo, will be held on 23 January 2023 at 14.00 pm. The meeting will be held at the Sala Monta of the Hotel Cavalieri Bra and promises a series of highly topical and interesting meetings and conferences.

In recent years i climate changes they confronted us with new problems.

The seminar represents an opportunity for analysis, in-depth study, reflection and study on issues related to hydrogeological risk and the worsening conditions of the slopes, made unstable by climate change and by increasingly sudden and violent rainfall.

The seminar represents a fundamental opportunity for engineers who wish to acquire and deepen the skills to be able to deal with issues related to hydrogeological risk with particular attention to structural and non-structural interventions of landslides.

A chance to Solid Earth which he has always shown great sensitivity and attention towards these topics.

In this regard, the intervention of Dr. Geo becomes important. Maurizio Gioia who will speak on the subject and specify the risks relating to the natural and eco-sustainable floors with high drainage capacity that Terra Solida has been dealing with for several years with enormous success.

The intervention of Dr. Maurizio Gioia is set at 17:10 until 17:50

The instability of the slopes is a current and fundamental theme to guarantee the integrity of the territory, but also the safety of the population and the total safety of the services.

The meetings will make it possible to investigate this delicate matter from a technical and scientific point of view, looking for valid intervention solutions to protect oneself from risks and natural dangers.

The program and topics of the workshop

The seminar program is full of appointments and important items to give their contribution in the search for a solution to hydrogeological risk.

The first to intervene will be the Doctor Engineer According to Barbero who will talk about water resources and sustainability, linking the theme to a 2022 lived between emergency and lessons learned.

It will then be the Professor's turn Claudius Oggieri of the Polytechnic of Turin who will investigate i landslide phenomena, focusing on causes and monitoring, followed by Professor Pier Paolo Oreste who will intervene regarding the modeling of the slopes.

Among the interventions not to be missed is also that of the Doctor Geologist Andrea Bodigoi on the control of surface erosion through the use of geomats and biomats.

Then there will be the intervention of the Doctor and Engineer Richard Bertolina on the collection, transport, treatment and reuse of rainwater.

The importance of studying hydrogeological risks

The hydrogeological risk is linked to the effects caused by exceeding the critical rainfall levels on the slopes.

A phenomenon strongly conditioned by climate change as well as by human action and which it is essential to watch with great attention.

Progressive urbanization, population density, deforestation and failure maintenance of watercourses he slopes over time have caused a real instability, highlighting even more the fragility of the territory, but above all the need to act immediately.

Solid Earth, always committed to chasing a sustainable approach, considers this topic of vital importance from a perspective of prevention and forecasting, to safeguard the territory and the safety of people, in search of possible innovations and solutions.
