The CNR IRPI Hydrogeomorphology group, together with the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano and the University of Padova will carry out an IPEC (Intensive Post Event Campaign), to reconstruct the dynamic of the extreme weather event that hit several catchments in Piacenza province, causing a severe flash flood and some casualties. First surveys will be carried out in cooperation with technical staff belonging to regional environmental agency (ARPA) and Po river management authority (AIPO).

The survey is carried out as part of Hymex program (http://www.hymex.org/) that aims to a better understanding of the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean region, with a special focus on extreme events.
