Potential relation between saltwater intrusion and geomorphological/hydrogeological setting in the coastal and lagoon areas south of Venice. In: Quarta Riunione Annuale Corila, Programma di Ricerca 2004-2007, Risultati del primo anno (Venice, Italy, 14-16 April 2005). Abstract, pp. 30 - 30. CORILA, 2005.
The investigated area is the southern part of the Venice Lagoon and the nearby catchment basin, where previous multidisciplinary studies provided the documented evidence of a critical phreatic aquifer contamination by saltwater intrusion from the sea and the lagoon. Results of this work point out that well developed paleo-river systems, intersecting the southern lagoon margin and the close coastline, and permeable sediments, bounding the two salt-water bodies, represent preferential environments of communication among waters characterized by different salinity. By contrast thick silty-clayey layers preclude the salty pollution from the lagoon and the sea.
