Melchiorre, M., D. Di Giuseppe, U. Tessari, and B. Faccini (2016a), Particle density distribution in a fluvial floodplain, Rendiconti Online Societa Geologica Italiana, 39, 163-165, doi: 10.3301/ROL.2016.32.


The mechanisms that determine the formation of a floodplain are very well known. At the same time, there is an established correspondence between the sedimentary deposits and density of the particles, whose distribution in the plain is until now poorly constrained. In this work we therefore highlight the spatial distribution of the particle density of soils from the Padania Po Plain in relation to the depositional sub-environment where they have been sampled.
