EIRF CM: Crowdmapping of earthquake induced rock falls

eirf-cm-evidenza Making reports of rockfall in the area affected by the earthquake in central Italy in ...

3DA: Threedimensional Displacement Analysis

prodotti-servizi-3da-evidenza The 3DA software is a new procedure that allows retrieving in near-real-time 3D surface deformation models starting from data acquired via robotized total stations or others system that acquire the surface displacements. The measurements are first pre-processed and then implemented on 3D maps that include vector arrows representative of the intensities and of the real directions of motion in a given system of coordinates. The 3D surface ...

Aerofototeca

aerofototeca-evidenza The CNR IRPI archive preserves 170.000 aerial photographs useful for stereoscopic applications. Most part of those photographs were taken during a number of surveys carried out between 1954 and 2005 in tha Padan Plain, Triveneto and Liguria (Northern Italy) but some examples date from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.In this documentation the effects of many floods and landslides events can be observed. In particular, we would mention the aerial ...

Hydro-meteorological Monitoring

Hydrometer used for the water level within river section The hydro-meteorological monitoring is the operational tool for the measures of atmospheric, hydrologic ad hydraulic variables characterizing the hydrological cycle and it represents the grounds of IRPI’s research activities finalized to forecast, prevention and mitigation of natural hazards. Indeed, an accurate knowledge of processes at basis of natural phenomenon cannot disregard the direct measure of hydrological quantities, considering ...

Hydrological-hydraulic validation of satellite data

Comparison between ground soil moisture at a 5 cm of depth for a site in Australia (Oznet network) and two satellite products (ASCAT and AMSRE). The service aims to assess the potential of different satellite products (from active and passive micro-waves, optical, SAR, spectroradiometers, radiometers sensors) in retrieving the main hydrological-hydraulic variables such as rainfall, soil moisture, water level, flow velocity and discharge. This is pursued through a comprehensive validation analysis by using in-situ observed or modelled data for several sited located ...

Levees and bridges vulnerability

Channel-bridge scheme: the safety freeboard and the effective freeboard are calculated for fixed intrados height, hp, and water level, hm. Assessment of bridge piers/abutments vulnerability to scour and overtopping hazard, assessment of levee vulnerability to seepage and overtopping hazard. The analysis is based on clearly identified criteria. Specifically, overtopping (IVS) and erosion (IVE) vulnerability indices are evaluated for each selected bridge, and the overtopping (IVsorm) and seepage vulnerability indices (IVsif) are calculated for the ...

Flood events analysis

Comparison between the flooded areas simulated by the  coupling hydrologic-hydraulic modelling and the ones observed during the flood event occurred in the Chiani River on November 2012. The service is based on a procedure consisting of four main steps: the analysis of hydro-meteorological data for the reconstruction of flood event in terms of precipitations and saturation conditions of the soils; assessment of the hydrological response of the basin; runoff estimation in each hydrometric site of interest; flooded areas delineation and comparison with in-situ ...

Climate change impact on extreme events

Andamento_Pioggia_Futura_Evidenza The service analyzes the climate change impact on the main hydro-meteorological variables involved in the hydrological cycle and, in particular, on extreme events of rainfall and discharge (droughts and floods). The service allows to evaluate the combined effects of natural and human processes related to climate change on surface runoff and groundwater, analyzing the possible consequences of such effects on the strategic water ...

Aerial and terrrestrial LiDAR surveys

LiDAR AEREO-evidenza The study of the evolution of the territory and especially of the of geo-hydrological instabilities can be often based on the use of high resolution digital terrain models. The possibility to make ad hoc surveys and repeat them over time can be useful for the identification and measurement of the topographic effects of a particular morphological process. LiDAR can be usually considered the best solution for the creation of high resolution DEM. ...

CWS: Cartographic web services

immagine_infrastruttura1-evidenza We provide maps and layers through standard OGC services and WebGIS applications. Our aim is to disseminate information on landslides and floods hazards and the related risk. More specifically the services focus on thematic data concerning landslides and floods, including: (i) landslide inventory maps at different scales and covering different geographical areas, (ii) landslide susceptibility, hazard and risk maps, and (iii) information on ...
