On November 7th, a team from CERAFRI analyzed the water and mud levels of the Arno from Ponte alle Grazie. This was to determine data after the rising water levels on November 6-7th, 2016.
In particular, data was taken for the first time to measure the mud at the bottom of the river, in addition to the water (at the time of the measurements it was around 300 cubic meters per second).
This data must be taken when the river’s water levels are very high. CERAFRI made analog measurements during the high water level on January 31st, 2014, the amount of which was similar to November 6th (around 1.500 cubic meters per second).
