Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Geosciences extends the successful series of Special Issues dedicated to cultural heritage and archaeology, by launching this fourth Special Issue aiming to gather original research articles, reviews, and technical notes, on how remote sensing, geophysics and geoscientific investigation techniques (either well established or recently developed) are used alone or in combination by archaeologists, geologists, image analysts, practitioners, and private companies to:

  • Search for buried features and investigate cropmarks;
  • Understand cultural landscapes and their past use;
  • Predict the archaeological potential in areas where infrastructure and urban development are planned;
  • Assess the condition of archaeological records and cultural heritage assets;
  • Assess natural or human-induced threats to conservation;
  • GIS analysis of past and modern landscapes;
  • Undertake geoarchaeological studies, also in urban environments;
  • Investigate materials and archaeological deposits.

We also encourage you to approach us by sending a short abstract outlining the purpose of the research and the principal results obtained, in order to verify at an early stage if the contribution you intend to submit fits with the objectives of the Special Issue.

Archaeological sites are affected by changes due to a natural deterioration process over time. If not prevented, this may compromise the functionality of the cultural property, and in turn become pathological and result in degradation. Monitoring through innovative technologies paves the way towards an effective planned maintenance activity and therefore preventive conservation. The monitoring project of the Parco Archeologico del Colosseo was inspired by the desire to build a system of protection and conservation at the service of sustainable exploitation. Established by Ministerial Decree 12 January 2017 in art. 3, the park is an independent cultural site of the Ministry of Culture. It includes the central area of Rome—the Roman Forum, the Palatine, the Colosseum and the Domus Aurea—and has an extension of about 77 hectares, of which about 32 are buildings. With these objectives, the Parco Archeologico del Colosseo has launched a static and dynamic monitoring project consisting of six fundamental levels of activities. The project involves the creation of a multi-parameter system of permanent control of the entire archaeological area, with the associated indicators of the level of risk, for which it is necessary the combined use of innovative technologies.
