Acquisition and analysis of multi-disciplinary marine geophysical datasets, including:
• Seismic reflection data - 2D multi-channel data (Crustal lines and middle resolution profiles)
• Seabed imagery - multibeam echosounders, sidescan sonar systems and Sub Bottom Profilers
Field Experience (Oceanographic and land Campaigns)
Participant in 15 campaigns: 8 in the Mediterranean Sea, 1 in Greenland Sea (Artic), 5 in the Peri-Antarctic Oceans and 1 in the Antarctic Plateau (Dome C) for over 1 year of shipboard experience and one month in the East Antarctic Continent (Concordia Station); Chief Scientist on 3 campaigns.
• Correlation from halokinetics features to up-ward fluid migration (pre-salt fluids) in Mediterranean Basin from analysis of multichannel seismic profiles and morphobathymetry data (seepage/venting structures).
• Geophysical study to individuate the relation between recent tectonics and inherited structures in the continental margin.
• Study on the development of mounds, potential biological build-ups in a geological dynamic environment, influenced by gas/fluids and gas/gas hydrate presence (circum-antarctic basins), using geophysical methods.
• Geodynamic systems on Antarctic continental margins.
• Natural gas hydrates in the marine environment.
