Abstract

Pagliarulo R. & Antonioli F. The impact of sea level changes on an urbanized area: the case of the city of Bari (Apulia). (IT ISSN 0394-3356, 2011) This paper considers the different depths of the ancient floor levels in the crypt of St. Nicholas Basilica (Bari), built in 1087 AD along the sea, as markers and compares them to eustatic sea level curve for the Adriatic coastline reconstructed on the basis of the Lambeck’s predictive model for the Late Pleistocene and Holocene changes in local relative sea level. (Lambeck et al.,2011). The palaeo sea levels have been obtained measuring: 1) the pavement levels in the crypt; 2) the groundwater table at the time of the construction of the Basilica and in 1956. The results give an interesting contribution to calibrate the predicted sea level curve for the last 1000 year.
