The Earth's surface is characterized by the presence of many active volcanoes, most of which are surrounded by ancient villages. High-valued historical sites are often so exposed that it becomes imperative to perform volcanic risk assessment including cultural heritage. For the safeguard of the...
Results of micromagnetic investigations at Kalø peninsula are presented and discussed. We developed a technique to calculate the optimum sensor configuration based on a given grid spacing. This configuration guarantees a maximum spatial resolution while minimizing the influence of near-surface...
A multi-method geophysical survey has been carried out on a Roman archaeological site, where part of an apse had previously been found and then refilled by archaeologists during an excavation test. Magnetic gradient measurements were performed over the whole study area and a sub-area of...
The remanent magnetization of red colour specimens from five mural paintings in three halls of Bibliotheca Apostolica Vaticana (Sistus V, Paul V and Alexander VIII, 1580–1690 A.D.) was investigated with the usual palaeomagnetic techniques. All specimens have a strong remanent magnetization...
Electrical resistivity mapping and electrical resistivity profiling are powerful instruments for investigating archaeological structures. Interpretation of geoelectrical data is complicated by near-surface anomalies and the characteristics of the applied electrode arrays. Averaging Wenner α and...
Feasibility and potential of tomography by Ground Penetrating Radar are investigated through experiments on laboratory models. The aim is the development of radar tomography procedures for inspection of structures like walls or pillars in historical buildings. Two different approaches are...
Many papers or conference presentations, particularly over the last ten years, have referred to multi-parametric geophysical surveys and integrated interpretations in archaeological prospection. Several experiments of this kind have been undertaken by our laboratory, with mostly fascinating...
The study area is located at S. Agata (Gera Lario), a small center at the northern end of Como Lake, near the junction of Valchiavenna and Valtellina Valleys. This site played a strategic role since ancient times, providing the control on the communications routes to both the Como Lake and the...
One of the youngest branches of environmental geophysics application is the preservation of national heritage. Numerous digital techniques developed for exploration directed to urban planning can also be applied to investigations of historic buildings. In identifying near-surface layers...
A 2.5-D and 3-D multi-fold GPR survey was carried out in the Archaeological Park of Aquileia (northern Italy). The primary objective of the study was the identification of targets of potential archaeological interest in an area designated by local archaeological authorities. The second...
