Successful flood risk management requires the capability of predicting and assessing the evolution of two broad classes of processes: the hydro-meteorological chain of events that contribute to the formation of hazardous flood waves and the land and urban vulnerability that translate the flood hazard in actual damages and life losses. The time scales of the(More)
Snow plays an important role in mountain regions hydrology, as accurate estimates of the amount of water contained within the snowpack are important for water supply, soil and groundwater recharge and floods. Estimates of snow water equivalent (SWE) are required, e.g., as inputs to snowmelt models to forecast the river runoff in the snowmelt season, but the(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 km2), characterized by complex(More)
The summermonsoon season is an important hydrometeorological feature of the Indian subcontinent and it has significant socioeconomic impacts. This study is aimed at understanding the processes associated with the occurrence of catastrophic flood events. The study has two novel features that add to the existing body of knowledge about the South Asian(More)
