Experimental Hydrological Database for Apennine Basins

(DIBA)

NextData-evidenza

Background

The main activities of the project, developed in the context of the program Nextdata funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), are:

  • collection, organization and analysis of the available hydro-meteorological and climate data for the characterization of the meteo-climate evolution in Apennine mountain areas;
  • extensive experimental campaigns for soil moisture monitoring in hillslope portions and streamflow measurements in river sites.

Two pilot areas have been selected: 1) Upper Chiascio River Basin, inland area located in the Umbria region territory; 2) Magra River basin, located between Liguria and Tuscany region.

Purpose

The overall aim of the project is to provide hydrological-meteorological data series and outcomes of the field campaigns and gather them into a geo-database following common specifications in accordance with the standard of NextData.
