Abstract

The work deals with the design, planning and implementation of an integrated monitoring system of coastal dynamics and river sediment transport, in order to characterize qualitative and quantitative phenomena, as well as sediment transport processes relative to the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coasts of Basilicata.
