Description

Semi-distributed continuous hydrological model (MISDc) for real-time soil moisture estimate and river discharge prediction in the Upper-Middle Tiber River basin; flood wave routing model (STAFOM-RCM) for stage hydrograph forecasting at some selected hydrometric stations in the Tiber River basin; Rainfall-runoff database coupled with the kinematic model KS for an expeditious estimate of probability flooding maps.

Users/Purpose

  • Local Civil Protection authorities (municipal, regional, functional centers) and the National Department of Civil Protection to support in real-time the monitoring and management of flood events and flooding phenomena.
  • National and international universities and research institutes interested in developing, improving and comparison of flood forecasting modelling/procedures for real-time monitoring and management.

Products

Real-time discharge and water level hydrographs forecasting, maps of flooding probability.
