• Nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction: a state-of-the-art review of the research area 

      Ruangpan, Laddaporn; Vojinovic, Zoran; Di Sabatino, Silvana; Leo, Laura Sandra; Capobianco, Vittoria; Oen, Amy M P; McClain, Michael E.; Lopez-Gunn, Elena (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Hydro-meteorological risks due to natural hazards such as severe floods, storm surges, landslides and droughts are causing impacts on different sectors of society. Such risks are expected to become worse given projected ...
    • The influence of grass roots on the shear strength of pyroclastic soils 

      Foresta, Vito; Capobianco, Vittoria; Cascini, Leonardo (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The paper investigates the effects of indigenous vegetation on the shear strength of loose pyroclastic soils of the Campania region (Southern Italy); these soils are frequently affected by shallow landslides 1-2m deep that ...
    • Wetting-Drying Response of an Unsaturated Pyroclastic Soil Vegetated with Long-Root Grass 

      Capobianco, Vittoria; Cascini, Leonardo; Cuomo, Sabatino; Foresta, Vito (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      This paper investigates the effect of a long-root grass on the hydraulic response of a partially saturated pyroclastic soil. The work is based on both long-term monitoring under atmospheric conditions and short-term ...
    • Wetting-induced collapse behaviour of a natural and vegetated coarse pyroclastic soil 

      Capobianco, Vittoria; Cascini, Laonardo; Cuomo, Sabatino; Foresta, Vito (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Unsaturated pyroclastic soils originated by Vesuvius volcano show a collapsible behaviour upon wetting with a significant reduction in volume and rearrangement of solid skeleton. The paper investigates the role played by ...
