The main topics of Michele Mossa’s research group are relevant with the Environmental and Maritime Hydraulics, examining the mechanisms of waves, sea currents, local erosion phenomena, buoyant and non-buoyant jets issued in steady or wave environment or in crossflow, also with macroroughness at the bottom (ripples or vegetation), channel flows and their local phenomena, such as hydraulic jumps.

                       

The Effects Of Vegetation On Turbulent Flow And Erosion In Coastal Environments

In the past, studies concerning the presence of vegetation in canals have been conducted in order to have information on the velocity diagrams and, therefore, on the flow laws of resistance. Really, aquatic vegetation provides various services to ecosystems, for example through the production of oxygen it improves the quality of water. Vegetation is also a source of nutrition and promotes biodiversity. Moreover, today studies are carried out on the possibility offered by the vegetation to protect the coasts from...
