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 measuring the particulate emissions and vibrations produced by these vessels, qualitatively representing their hydrodynamic impact on the city's canals, 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.
