Furthermore Province of Vicenza receives and manages warnings signalled by public corporations and private individuals, to evaluate the necessity to work the problem out as soon as possible or to better monitor the area of interest. These activities are aimed at defining levels of danger, implementing warning system and supporting the (step/stage) phase of work design.
Moreover the Province cooperates with the University of Padua, Geoscience dept, for developing experimental studies related to triggering instabilities, carrying out lab investigations, implementing numerical models and monitoring ground displacements through remote sensing techniques.
