This group aimed to quantify levels of boat wakes in the Venetian canals over the past decade. The group found that both boat traffic and boat wakes are increasing, and will continue to increase. The group then examined several ways Venice could reduce these destructive boat wakes. The four possibilities include; changing the hull shape, enforcing speed limits, a taxi re-engineering plan, and a cargo re-engineering plan. If adapted, these proposals could reduce boat wakes by 57% in Venetian Canals.
