Title: Saltwater intrusion in the southern catchment basin of the Venice Lagoon, Italy

Abstract: The investigated area is the catchment located south of the Venice Lagoon, where multidisciplinary studies (ISES Project, Co.Ri.La. 3.10 Project)1 provided evidence of a phreatic aquifer contamination due to saltwater intrusion from the sea and the lagoon. The ground elevation of the territory, generally below the mean sea level up to -4 m, enhances the process especially in those sectors where land subsidence, mainly due to peat soil oxidation in close connection with the agricultural practices, is responsible for a subsidence rate varying between 1.5 and 2 cm/yr (Gambolati et al., 2005).
