Research No more secrets at Lake Garda Finished the bathymetric exploration of the seabed started in 2018 and carried out by the Italian Navy together with the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences. Data and images to better protect the lake ecosystem are now available to scholars and researchers by Antonella Olivari | 04 novembre 2020 The bathymetric exploration of the seabed started in 2018 and carried out by the Italian Navy and the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences has recently concluded. It took almost one hundred days to explore, record, photograph and collect materials from all over Lake Garda. Now the largest lake in Italy has a bathymetry of its seabed - unprecedented for the quality and detail of the images - which will provide greater navigation safety and address the problems related to climate change and greater protection of this lake ecosystem. Some of these details will also be used to reconstruct accurately the geological history of Lake Garda's formation; this can be evident in the images, for example, the fault between Sirmione and Punta San Vigilio. Before leaving Lake Garda, the mission, led by Sub-Lieutenant Roberto Aleo , was joined by Rear Admiral Massimiliano Nannini , in charge of the Hydrographic Institute of Genoa since a few months, who met in Lazise the Dean Professor Maurizio Paolini and Professor Alfredo Marzocchi . This data will make it possible to carry out an accurate simulation of the movement of the waters of the Lake Garda basin, influenced by the medium/high mountains or moraines that surround it, by the temperature, pressure and humidity of the air.
