AGU: Venice hasn't stopped sinking after all
Date:3/20/2012

espect to the problem that Venice experienced 20, 30 years ago," said Teatini, who has also studied the movements of the ground around Venice but was not involved in the current study. "It's a small amount."

The gates are designed to close when the high tides reach a level of 1,100 mm above a certain point, he said. If the city subsides a few tens of millimeters over the coming decades, the gates can handle it. They will simply have to close more often, since that trigger level would be hit more often.

Teatini and his colleagues are also investigating geoengineering solutions for the Venice, including an idea to inject saltwater into the aquifers deep below the city, reversing the subsidence caused by groundwater pumping. A paper by the research team outlining the proposals was published last December in Water Resources Research, a journal of the American Geophysical Union (http://www.agu.org/pubs/crossref/2011/2011WR010900.shtml).
