In addition to the common hardware and software tools, specific
equipments are located in several laboratories, both "light"
and "heavy". The latter is formed by an educational lab
(Old) and a research lab (New) where 5 new experimental
flumes (from 8m to 25m long, equipped with technologically advanced
instrumentation) and other large scale installations are devoted
to the study of mud- and debris-flow rheology and of morphological
dynamics of braiding rivers.
