This project utilized artistic and archeological indicators in the form of 18th century paintings, 19th century photographs and previously undocumented engravings on canal walls to reconstruct unknown sea levels in Venice, Italy for 1700 to 1872. The team recorded pertinent sea level indicators and created MapInfo maps of all locations for future studies. The tidal progression derived in this study was then correlated to known climate affecting events during the time period under investigation with theoretical natural tidal fluctuations.
