  • Oceanography is a very complex science. Its field study, the knowledge of the oceans and the seas and their physical and biological characteristics, is fundamental to comprehend many oceanographic and ecological aspects that directly influence the human life and the planet health. From micro-scale, like coastal processes, to macro-scale, like Global Change, the oceans, the seas and the marine life, play the main role to maintain the earth equilibrium, both from a physical and a chemical point of view (e.g. carbon cycle and water masses dynamic)....

  • Asthenosphere A region of the earth’s upper mantle at a depth of approximately 75–150 km, characterized by low mechanical strength, attenuation of seismic shear waves, and partial melting. The term was coined in the 1910s by geologist Joseph Barrell to describe the zone in which isostatic adjustment occurs and basaltic magmas are generated. With the development of plate tectonics in the 1960s, the asthenosphere is now un- derstood as the plastic zone over which the rigid plates move....
