1. EXTENDED ABSTRACT Floods are among the costliest and deadliest natural hazards, and their impacts are clearly accentuated by the climate change [1]. During the period 1975-2006 floods around the world were the major disaster in term of people affected and value of the damage [2]. The management of a flood event requires singling out the affected area,(More)

[4] , Joost Beckers [5] , Fabio Dell'acqua [6] ABSTRACT Climate change challenges our understanding of risk by modifying hazards and their interactions. Sudden increases in population and rapid urbanization are changing exposure to risk around the globe, making impacts harder to predict. RASOR will develop a platform to perform multi-hazard risk analysis(More)
The operational meteo-hydrological forecasting chain of the Liguria Region (NW Italy) is applied to a different morphoclimatic environment, such as the Emilia Romagna Region (N Italy). Modification to the chain, both in models and in procedures, are introduced to overcome problems related to medium dimension catchments (A≈1000 km 2), characterized by(More)
Hydrologic rainfall-runoff models are usually calibrated with reference to a limited number of recorded flood events, for which rainfall and runoff measurements are available. In this framework, model's parameters consistency depends on the number of both events and hydrograph points used for calibration, and on measurements reliability. Recently , to make(More)
