Research activity
Paleoecology: auto-ecology of neogene marine fossil invertebrates; sinecology of neogene fossil communities in the
Mediterranean Area.
Paleoceanography: benthic and pelagic ecosystems of the eastern Mediterranean Sea during the isotopic stages 1-5.
Marine geology: coastal and offshore sedimentology in the Mediterranean Sea, biosphere-geosphere interaction related
to cold seep on the Mediterranean continental margins.
Partecipation to International Projects 2000-2005
a) European Commission funded projects:
Marine Sciences and Technologies Programme: MAST III
SAP Project (Sapropels and Paleoceanography (1998-2001)), Milano University Research Unit (coordinator Prof. E.
Erba). Activity: ecology and paleoecology of calcareous and silicieous plancton, paleoceanography.
5° Framework Program
BIODEEP Project (Biotechnologies from the deep (2001-2004)). Project coordinator and coordinator of the Research
Unit of CoNISMa. Activities: detailed exploration of the hypersaline anoxic basins of the eastern Mediterranean, from
the geological, geochemical and microbiological viewpoints.
b) National Projects: 2000-2006
b1) MIUR Ministero dell’Istruzione, Università, Ricerca (40% Funding)
The Mediterranean paleoecosystem dynamics during the Eemian (2001-2003). National coordinator. Three main
scientific objectives: to identify variations in the Mediterranean Sea related to climate changes during the Eemian
period; to define the main physical parameters in the Mediterranean marine ecosystem during the Eemian,; to carry out
numerical simulations of the effects of climate changes within the Eemian on the physical and biogeochemical
characteristics of the Mediterranean Sea.
b3) FISR Project (2006-2008)VECTOR 'VulnErability of the Italian Coastlines and of the marine ecosystems to
climaTe changes and their rOle in the oceanic caRbon cycle‘
National Coordinator
The principal outcome of the project will be the understanding of the most significative impacts of climate variability
and change on the Mediterranean Sea environment (sedimentary processes, physical processes, biodiversity and
biogeochemical cycles), including the role of the region on planetary cycle of the carbon dioxide (CO 2).
The project plan is structured around 10 Work Packages along core themes as follows:
WP1: Climate variability effects on wind-wave dynamics (CLICOST)
WP2: Vulnerability of estuaries/lagoons to climate changes (VULCOST)
WP3: Impact of sea level changes on coastal areas and ground-water resources (VARCOST)
WP4: Climate variability, Biodiversity and marine coastal ecosystems (BIOCOST)
WP5: Sensitivity of Venice Lagoon to climate change and variability: a case study (CLIVEN)
WP6: Role of the Northern Adriatic continental shelf to carbon cycling (CARADRI)
WP7: Role of living resources over the Mediterranean continental shelf to carbon cycling (CARLIVE)
WP8: Role of pelagic regions of the Mediterranean Sea to carbon cycling (CARPEL)
WP9: Carbon cycle in the Southern Ocean test site (CAROCE)
WP10: Project Management (VECTORNET)
b3) CNR Ecosistemi marini SINAPSI Project (2000-2003) (national coordinator Prof. N. Pinardi). Prof. Corselli is
responsible of the local research group of Milano-Bicocca del CoNISMa within the Marine ecosystem project
(Seasonal, interanual and decadal variability of the atmosphere, ocean and related marine ecosystems) and in particular
of research line B6 (climatic variability in the Mediterranean area: monitoring the climatic event which affected the
Mediterranean in the last decade) and D3 (warm climatic transition (9000-6000 BP)) within research line D (Climatic
variability of past regimes). Prof. Corselli is also member of the Scientific Committee and of the Program Committee of
the Project.
