CNR IRPI studying the flood of October 2018 in northeastern Italy


CNR IRPI is involved in post-event surveys aimed at characterizing the flood response and mapping instability phenomena after the severe rainstorm that hit the mountain sector of northeastern Italy on 27-29 October 2018. These activities are carried on in collaboration with the University of Padova (Depts. TESAF and Geoscienze) and the Free University of Bolzano (Faculty of Science and Technology).

CNR IRPI has supported the Civil Protection Department of Veneto Region in managing the emergency caused by the reactivation of the Tessina landslide, which has been monitored by CNR IRPI since April 1992.
