Brambati A., Carbognin L., Quaia T., Teatini P., Tosi L. The Lagoon of Venice: geological setting, evolution and land subsidence. In: Episodes, vol. 26 (3) pp. 264 - 268. Int Union Geological Sciences, 2003.
The paper deals wit the geological setting, histiory and subsidence of the Venetian Plain. Major attention is paid to the Pleistocene-olocene stratigraphic sequence in the Lagoon of Venice, in relation to its origin that dates back to 6-7 kyr BP. geological land subsidence, which played and important role in the origin and the evolution of the lagoon, and anthropogenic subsidence, that recently assumed a major importance for the Venetian environment are discussed. Considering also the sea level rise, 23 cn loss in land elevation has occurred in the last century, leading to increased flooding events and environmental problems that require protective works.
