Earth, Environmental and Resources Science
The understanding and definition of both static and evolutionary geological aspects is indispensable for any territorial and environment management. With the established experience gained in the previous cycles of this same doctoral program, we aim to form a researcher in Earth Sciences with both specific and transverse knowledge, able to coordinate differentiated activities for geological analysis of the territory and for the study of interactions with the environment related to the static and dynamic attributes of the physical environment. This is particularly useful for the complex management of the Neapolitan and Campania regions, with high seismic, volcanic, hydrogeological and environmental risks (this last due to cultural-artistic heritage and waste pollution). The training profile will favor aspects related to the past geological phenomena (with their influence on the distribution and magnitude of geo resources) and those related to recent and current dynamics (with their influence on distribution and risk intensity), in addition to the application and development of geophysical, geochemical and geological technologies ranging from monitoring to 3D modeling of physical-chemical parameters, both for predictive and indirect exploration of the subsoil for the purpose of identifying, enhancing and managing the resources of the territory, Including oil and mining.
The main reseach themes for the XXXIII Cycle are :
