Mario Tenani graduated in 1907 as a physicist from the University of Pisa. From 1915 to 1923 he was at the Osservatorio Aerologico di Vigna di Valle and there investigated mainly problems in meteorology. In parallel, he was an educator in aerology during World War I. From 1924, Tenani was attached to the Hydrographic Institute of the Marine. He moved in 1936 as a professor of terrestrial physics to the University of Naples and from there took over the Institute of Meteorology and Oceanography of the Naval University in Naples. Tenani finally directed as a professor of geophysics the Hydrographic Institute of the Naval Engineering School in Genoa. He was a Member of the National Research Council and the International Commission for the Sea, and he was the Italian representative for meteorology and oceanography.
Tenani contributed to geophysics in general and to marine hydromechanics in particular. His most influential book was published in 1940 treating both the experimental and the theoretical aspects of sea movements. He there also described his developed current meter which was extensively used both for lakes and the sea. Tenani also contributed to the meteorology and there proposed procedures to predict the weather with observations of the main parameters in various locations above the Earth. He also devised novel methods to record wind velocities in larger altitudes and means to compute the wind energy at a certain location.
