Documentation and analysis of flash floods

focus-Documentazione_analisi_piene_improvvise_01-evidenza-2 Flash floods occur in small to medium size river basins, and are characterised by fast temporal evolution. Because of their intensity and short warning times, flash floods often cause not only major economic damage, but also loss of lives.An integrated approach to documentation and analysis of flash floods has to include the following issues:post-flood observations aimed at estimating peak discharge and reconstructing temporal ...

Damaging geo-hydrological events in Calabria from 1990 to 1999

focus-calabria-2-evidenza We published a book entitled “Eventi alluvionali in Calabria nel periodo 1990-1999” (Alluvial events in Calabria from 1990 to 1999)Link to the Book» The volume is the result of a study that lasted more than a year, and was part of long-lasting research effort to investigate historical landslide and flood events in Calabria, which started in the ‘70s of last century.To search the information, we went to the Public Provincial ...

Flood forecasting and flood risk assessment

evidenza-floris The project is focused on flood forecasting and hydraulic risk, i.e. the assessment of the effects of flooding in flood-prone areas also involving the vulnerability assessment of the hydraulic structures (dams, leaves, bridges, ...

Historical ARchive of COsenza

arco-evidenza ARCO is the historical archive concerning the geo-hydrological events that occurred in Calabria (south Italy) between 1850 and 1990. The archive is made of 506 folders. 45 folders contain projects of land reclamation, management works of fluvial basins and refunding requests carried out after earthquakes. 461 folders, sorted per municipality, contain refunding requests due to geo-hydrological events, communications between citizens and public ...

Use of SMAP soil moisture products for operational flood forecasting: data assimilation and antecedent wetness conditions assessment

SMAP_EA_IMMEV The project aims at using Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) soil moisture (SM) products at different spatial resolution (3, 9, and 36 km) for hydrological applications in Europe (mainly in ...

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 ...

Hydraulic hazard maps

Example of flooding area of Genna River. Hydraulic hazard maps for return periods of 50, 100, 200 and 500 ...

Operational systems for flood wave forecasting (MISDc and STAFOM-RCM models) and flooding prediction (KS model)

modelli_operativi3_evidenza 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 ...

Dynamic flooding scenarios

Scenari1 The project activities were carried out in two phases:"dynamic scenarios of flood risk" identification through hydrologic-hydraulic modeling addressed to Civil Protection activities (2009-2011); operational implementation of developed dynamic scenarios of flood risk and results dissemination trough web-GIS technologies, also within the context of Floods Directive 2007/60 /EC (2012-203); flood forecasting models implementation; ...

Flooding-prone areas delineation

allagabili1_evidenza The project activities were carried out in two phases:delineation of flooding-prone areas for many river reaches selected in the secondary hydrographic network of Tiber River basin (2009-2011); analysis of the severe flood event that affected the Paglia river basin on November ...
