Description 
Summary

CORILA is an association of Ca' Foscari University of Venice, the University Institute of Architecture of Venice, the University of Padua and the Italian National Council of Research CNR. It is overseen by the Italian Ministry of Teaching, University and Research. CORILA's research is specifically geared to better understand the functioning of the lagoon's systems, natural and man-made, both ecologically and in a socio-economic context, filling the gaps in the existing knowledge. The experimental activity is based on two auto-recording self-contained ADCP (Malamocco and Lido) and one ADCP recording data (Chioggia) sent to Ufficio Marea of Venice Municipality via GSM.
