Newsletter September 2014

New website online!

We are pleased to announce that the new website of NHAZCA is on-line! An overall renewal has been performed in order to provide our guest more intuitive access to the contents in an endearing graphic. We introduced two main core topics: SOLUTIONS and TECHNOLOGIES, with short links to main related projects, publications, courses and insights. NHAZCA staff wishes you a pleasant navigation.

Come to visit NHAZCA

On September 2014, NHAZCA S.r.l. will attend two important events:

- IAEG XII CONGRESS, that will be held in Turin from the 15th to the 19th,
- COAST ESONDA EXPO 2014, that will be held in Ferrara from the 17th to the 19th.

During the IAEG XII CONGRESS, Francesca Bozzano and Paolo Mazzanti of NHAZCA, will chair the session entitled "Analysis and control of ground deformations by remote monitoring" on the 16th September in Atene Room. Furthermore, in the same session, Paolo Mazzanti will give a lecture entitled "Terrestrial SAR Interferometry monitoring of natural slopes and man-made structures" showing the state of art of monitoring with Terrestrial SAR Interferometry.

During the COAST ESONDA EXPO 2014, NHAZCA staff will give a lecture entitled "Remote analysis and monitoring of landslides: successful applications in Italy". Furthermore, NHAZCA staff will be available at our booth for the whole congress time (Booth 61-Pavilion 4).

International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring

On June 4-6 2014 took place in the Castle of Poppi (Tuscany - Italy) the First International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring, organized by Paolo Mazzanti (CEO of NHAZCA) and directed by John Dunnicliff. More than 100 participants and 23 exhibitors shared with us this great experience. We are already focused on the next course that will be held again in Poppi on the same dates 4-6 June 2015! We have several ideas on how improving and making this course even more "fascinating" and "interesting" then the first one.

Registrations for the 2015 course are already open at:

Integrating remote sensing techniques for cliffs stability analysis

A new scientific paper was published on Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences International Journal. A real case study about the integration of remote sensing techniques (TInSAR, TLS and IR Thermography) for the evaluation of slopes prone to rock failures is presented.
