Abstract

The present paper summarizes the original approach, the different stages and the most innovative results of an interdisciplinary research activity, carried out on the subsoil of a historical site, in a seismic area, in Italy: the old town of Potenza, capital of the Basilicata Region. The entire Research-work has been designed and implemented within a total period of about 3 years. The paper is divided into twelve paragraphs and is organized logically, so that the reader can follow the development sequence of the different, interdisciplinary activities, detailed in the “Research General Flow-Chart”. After the Introduction [paragraph 1.0.0], the Philosophical Approach [paragraph 2.0.0] is described and then, an Overview of the Entire Research-work [paragraph 3.0.0] is outlined. Described and discussed, in the paragraphs from 4.0.0 to 10.0.0, are the basic methods together with the main procedures and results, developed within seven large Thematic Areas: “Historical Research”, “Remote Sensing Integrated Analyses”, “Geomorphology”, “Geolithology”, “Investigation Program”, “Hydrogeology”, “Geotechnics and Foundation Analyses”. The paragraph 11.0.0 is devoted to an Overview of the final Data Processing and the last paragraph [12.0.0] addresses the Closing Overview.

Environmental Geotechnics to Study a Historical Town

New York, New York

The present paper summarizes the original approach, the different stages and the most innovative results of an interdisciplinary research activity, carried out on the subsoil of a historical site, in a seismic area, in Italy: the old town of Potenza, capital of the Basilicata Region. The entire Research-work has been designed and implemented within a total period of about 3 years. The paper is divided into twelve paragraphs and is organized logically, so that the reader can follow the development sequence of the different, interdisciplinary activities, detailed in the “Research General Flow-Chart”. After the Introduction [paragraph 1.0.0], the Philosophical Approach [paragraph 2.0.0] is described and then, an Overview of the Entire Research-work [paragraph 3.0.0] is outlined. Described and discussed, in the paragraphs from 4.0.0 to 10.0.0, are the basic methods together with the main procedures and results, developed within seven large Thematic Areas: “Historical Research”, “Remote Sensing Integrated Analyses”, “Geomorphology”, “Geolithology”, “Investigation Program”, “Hydrogeology”, “Geotechnics and Foundation Analyses”. The paragraph 11.0.0 is devoted to an Overview of the final Data Processing and the last paragraph [12.0.0] addresses the Closing Overview.
