Bastianini M., Cavaleri L., La Rocca T. An extreme meteorological event at the ISMAR oceanographic tower. In: Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, vol. 12 pp. 281 - 285. Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2012.
We report the evidence of a remarkable meteorological event in the Northern Adriatic Sea. Following the irruption of cold northerly air into the previously hot and humid eastern part of the Po valley, a strong instability developed with violent thunderstorms. At the ISMAR oceanographic tower, 15 km off the coast of the Venice lagoon, although no one was on board, the records of 6 July 2008 from the various instruments coherently show the presence of an extreme and short-lived event that we associate either to a water spout or, more likely, to the strong downdraft of a mesoscale convective system
