Venice Shall Rise Again. Engineered Uplift of Venice Through Seawater Injection

Town of Venice, Italy, has been subjected to periodic flooding, or acqua alta, for hundreds of years. Venice Shall upward thrust back provides a distinct proposition to halt this flooding. in keeping with years of labor and scan, specialists Gambolati and Teatini describe an leading edge but technologically uncomplicated, economically low-cost, and environmentally pleasant venture to elevate Venice via 25-30 cm over ten years by way of injecting seawater into 650-1000 m deep geological formations.

Oliveira and Loucks [48] presented an approach to optimize operating rules for multi-reservoir systems using genetic algorithms (GA). Chen [47] successfully applied a real-coded GA in combination with a simulation model to optimize rule curves of a major reservoir in Taiwan. Ngo et al. [49] proposed to optimize control strategies for reservoir operation by applying a combination 20 H. Wang et al. Input data Application of reservoir simulation model with operation policies The proposed operation policy Evaluation of objective function Sopping criteria satisfied?

The simulation model takes 1 month as a time step and one piece of 2D reservoir rule curves is used for 2 months. In Fig. 20, demand 1 and demand 2 are corresponding to agriculture and industry water demand. From January to December, the rule zones of 2D reservoir rule curves present some interesting variation. Shortly, the hedging zones in drought season are larger than the ones in flood season, which can be illustrated from the perspective of reservoir inflow changes. During flood season, the reservoir storage approaches full state and there is not necessary to restrict water supply.

For reducing the decision variable numbers, the reservoir water level at different operation periods are expressed using one variable just like Fig. 20. In this way, we need to make sure what periods can be aggregated, because the aggregation pattern may influence the operation results.
