Monitoring Systems for Environmental Resources and Natural Disasters

Monitoring of Landslides and Collapse Events

The sustainable use of environmental resources and protection from natural disasters are issues of great relevance in a country like Italy, which is strongly exposed to hydro-geological hazards such as flooding, subsidence of riverbanks, landslides and avalanches.

Each of these phenomena can to be carefully monitored and controlled with instruments specifically created by Pizzi Instruments thanks to our long experience in this field.
