Spatial distribution of rainfall trends in Sicily (1921 2000)
Abstract The feared global climate change could have important effects on various environmental variables including rainfall in many countries around the world. Changes in precipitation regimeExpand

Comparative analysis of different techniques for spatial interpolation of rainfall data to create a serially complete monthly time series of precipitation for Sicily, Italy
TLDR
In this paper different spatial interpolation algorithms have been evaluated to produce a reasonably good continuous dataset bridging the gaps in the historical rainfall data of Sicily (Italy), measured at 247 raingauges. Expand

Rainfall statistics changes in Sicily
Changes in rainfall characteristics are one of the most relevant signs of current climate alterations. Many stud- ies have demonstrated an increase in rainfall intensity and a reduction of frequencyExpand

Spatial distribution of temperature trends in Sicily
Climate change resulting from the enhanced greenhouse effect is expected to have great impacts on hydrological cycle and consequently on ecosystems. The effects of climate variability have directExpand

A model of route perception in urban road networks
TLDR
This study proposes an operational model explicitly simulating route perception by drivers in an urban network and presents some calibration results based on a sample of routes stated as available/perceived by students and university workers in the city of Reggio Calabria. Expand

Mode selection in trailing vortices: harmonic response of the non-parallel Batchelor vortex
In the present study, the response of model trailing vortices subjected to a harmonic forcing is studied. To this purpose, a globally stable non-parallel Batchelor vortex is considered as theExpand

Transient soil‐moisture dynamics and climate change in Mediterranean ecosystems
[1] Plants in Mediterranean ecosystems have developed different strategies to cope with transient soil-moisture dynamics induced by the markedly out of phase seasonal behavior of rainfall andExpand

EHSM: a conceptual ecohydrological model for daily streamflow simulation
A parsimonious conceptual lumped model is here presented with the aim of simulating daily streamflow in semi-arid areas. The model, processing daily rainfall and reference evapotranspiration at basinExpand

Annual flow duration curves assessment in ephemeral small basins
Flow duration curve (FDC) represents a comprehensive signature of temporal runoff variability often used to synthesize catchment rainfall–runoff responses. A new model, the ModABa (MODel for AnnualExpand

Retention performance of green roofs in representative climates worldwide
Abstract The ongoing process of global urbanization contributes to an increase in stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces, threatening also water quality. Green roofs have been proved to beExpand
