Very high resolution seismic survey in the Chioggia-Venezia lagoon

The objective of this project was to characterize the most recent (Late Quaternary) sediments until a maximum depth of 30 m. This work was the build the Venezia and Chioggia-Malamocco Sheets (Carta Geologica d'Italia scale 1:50.000, 148-149) for APAT (Regione Veneto). We had mapped the geological subsurfaces. 

It involved the acquisition of very high resolution seismic profiles for a total amount of 200Km. We collected data with our Boomer.

The interpretation was conducted by calibrating the monochannel seismic data with the available stratigraphical data from wells.
