        Welcome to the 2010 Ships project website. The ultimate purpose of this project was to further the understanding of the comprehensive impacts, both positive and negative, of cruise ships on the city of Venice. This objective was accomplished by quantifying the vibrations produced by these vessels, qualitatively representing their hydrodynamic impact on the city’s canals, measuring their particulate emissions and analyzing the disembarking passengers’ modes of transportation. Most importantly, future collaboration was fostered between both Venetian and American environmental, oceanic, and mobility experts to carry on with these studies.
