The research activity has as main objectives:

1) The validation and application of innovative satellite products for hydrological modelling improvement;

2) The application of satellite products for the monitoring of drought phenomena;

3) Data assimilation of hydrological variables in hydrological/land surface models.

Sara Modanesi was born in Tarquinia, Italy, in 1985. She received a M.S. degree in Applied Geology in 2012 and a Master degree in Analysis and Management of Hydrological Hazard in 2016, from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, both with excellence.

From October 2017 to March 2018, she carried out a traineeship with the Research Institute of Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Perugia (Italy) within the project “New technologies for Hydrogeological Risk Assessment”.

From May 2018 she is working with a research scholarship at the Research Institute of Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Perugia (Italy). Her main research interest is the validation and application of innovative satellite products for the improvement of hydrological modelling and drought monitoring.
