Natural and anthropogenic sinkholes

The Table aims to work on the assessment of a database on natural natural and anthropogenic sinkholes on the national territory, also classifying the phenomena. A goal of the Table is also to promote an analysis of the susceptibility of regional territories to natural sinkholes and to analyze the susceptibility of anthropogenic sinkholes in major Italian cities as well as the presence of underground cavities in regional territories.
It is also a major concern of the Table to define guidelines for sinkhole susceptibility maps and for monitoring and preserving areas affected by natural and anthropogenic sinkholes.
