Problems and means of coordination to combine the exploitation of aggregates and urban planning in the metropolitan area of Rome, Italy


, : Problems and means of coordination to combine the exploitation of aggregates and urban planning in the metropolitan area of Rome, Italy. Bulletin of the International Association of Engineering Geology 29(Pages 307-310

The supply of aggregates of the surrounding areas of big cities is confronted with major problems: on the one hand, concerning the necessarily high quantities of the needed materials; on the other hand, the increasing difficulty when trying to open new quarries at an economically still acceptable distance. The utilization of the available deposits is limited, due to a growing attention for values which are linked to the protection of the environment. It is essential to analyze closely the characteristics of the territory, the structure of the industrial sector and the distances of transportation, in order to maintain the production rate of aggregates, and to choose the location of excavating activities. As an example we will analyze the situation of the region surrounding the city of Rome.--Modified journal abstract.

Mitotic activity in the anterior pituitary of the mouse was investigated during 5 stages of pregnancy between 6 1/2 and 18 1/2 days. A significant decline in mitotic activity occurs between 6 1/2 and 9 1/2 days of gestation, whereas subsequently t...

The aim of this study was to explore the therapeutic effect of Pleurotus eryngii cellulose on experimental fatty liver in rats. Rats were fed high-fat fodder to establish a rat fatty liver model, and were then fed different concentrations of Pleur...

Angiotensin II (ANG II) inhibits delayed rectifier K+ current (I-K) and stimulates total Ca-2+ current (I-Ca) in neurons cocultured from newborn rat hypothalamus and brain stem, effects mediated via ANG II type 1 (AT-1) receptors. Here, we identif...
