The estimation of flood losses is crucial for the quantitative estimation of risk and the cost–benefit analysis of risk mitigation and prevention measures. Flood losses are usually estimated by means of vulnerability functions, which are often developed in a synthetic way by experts, since loss datasets collected after events are sparse or lacking...

La stima quantitativa del rischio idraulico, non limitata alla sola pericolosità, è un passo cruciale per una coerente strategia di gestione e mitigazione. Si propone qui una nuova metodologia, applicata al caso di Firenze, per la stima del rischio da alluvione al dettaglio della scala censuaria. Tale scala è un ottimo compromesso fra dettaglio spa...

In seguito all'analisi delle deformazioni rilevate tramite i dati interferometrici satellitari elaborati nell'ambito del Piano Straordinario di Telerilevamento Ambientale nei principali acquiferi alluvionali presenti nel bacino del fiume Arno, vengono analizzati alcuni indicatori utili alla descrizione dell'impatto dei fenomeni di subsidenza innesc...
Article
The institutional activity of the Arno River Basin Authority is focused on two strategical planning processes: the River Basin Management Plan, according to 2000/60/CE European Direcitve, and the Flood Management Plan, according to 2007/60/CE European Directive. Both plans contain most of the contents of Arno River Basin Plan, developed after the i...

The Pilot Arno Water Accounts (PAWA) project was recently funded under the Call “Preparatory Action on Development of Prevention Activities to Halt Desertification in Europe” of the Directorate- General for the Environment of the European Commission to promote preventive actions to manage water scarcity and drought phenomena and to meet one of the...
Article
Full-text available
Flood risk assessment is a crucial step for flood risk management purposes, thus answering the requirements of the European Flood Directive 60/2007/EC (European Commission). In this work, a census data scale, which has been considered as a good compromise between spatial resolution and availability of open socio-economic data, is adopted for risk a...

Full-text available
Flood risk assessment in art cities poses many challenges for the presence of cultural heritage at risk, which is a damage category whose value is hardly monetizable. In fact, valuing cultural asset is a complex task, usually requiring more effort than a rough estimation of restoration costs. The lack of an adequate risk evaluation of the cultural...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
SOMMARIO L'adozione delle direttiva 2007/60/EC prevede che i paesi europei realizzino mappe della pericolosità e del rischio idraulico. Il rischio idraulico è comunemente definito come il prodotto tra la pericolosità, la vulnerabilità e l'esposizione e ciascuna di queste componenti va stimata con il medesimo livello di accuratezza. Conseguentemente...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The assessment of flood risk in urban areas is considered nowadays a crucial issue to be addressed by technicians and public authorities and requires the estimation of hazard, vulnerability and exposure. Each step of the risk assessment brings its uncertainties to the final result, thus the analysis of the sensitivity to the different contributors...

Riassunto Lo scopo del lavoro è quello di mettere in relazione la distribuzione a scala regionale delle deformazioni superficiali ottenute da analisi interferometrica differenziale di immagini radar satellitari con lo stato di sfruttamento delle risorse idriche sotterranee in acquiferi di tipo alluvionale. Sono stati utilizzati i dati puntuali di d...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Il presente lavoro si propone di analizzare i dati interferometrici del Piano Straordinario di Telerilevamento Ambientale (PSTA) per valutare lo stato deformativo di edifici del patrimonio culturale nazionale e definirne più accuratamente la vulnerabilità in relazione a fenomeni di dissesto idrogeologico quali alluvioni, frane o subsidenza. Sono st...
Article
Full-text available
The adoption of 2007/60/EC Directive requires European countries to implement flood hazard and flood risk maps by the end of 2013. Flood risk is the product of flood hazard, vulnerability and exposure, all three to be estimated with comparable level of accuracy. The route to flood risk assessment is consequently much more than hydraulic mod-elling...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The route to flood risk assessment is much more than hydraulic modelling of inundation, that is hazard mapping. Flood risk is the product of flood hazard, vulnerability and exposure, all the three to be estimated with comparable level of accuracy. While hazard maps have already been implemented in many countries, quantitative damage and risk maps a...
Article
Full-text available
In the framework of River Basin Managment Plans (RBMPs), according to the Water Framework Directive, prevention and mitigation of water scarcity and droughts are some of the most challenging tasks. In the last ten years Italy experienced the highest ever observed frequency of occurrence of drought/water scarcity events. As an example, the damages f...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Deformation data obtained by differential interferometric analysis of radar images acquired by the satellite platform were used as a useful support in the definition of geometry and state of activity of landslides for identifying areas at risk and defining priorities for action. The interferometric data derived from radar images acquired by the ERS...

MOBIDIC (MOdello di Bilancio Idrologico DIstribuito e Continuo) is a distributed hydrological modelling package for various applications. The main innovations concern: (a) the coupling of the water balance in the soil and vegetation with the surface energy balance, to the benefit of evapotranspiration computation and the use of remotely-sensed maps...

1. ABSTRACT The present research can represent a significant step forward due to t he acquisition and analysis of historical time series of higher than usual frequency data (hourly), which allows to perform far more robust and significant statistical analysis of the variability and tendencies of the extreme storms, as well as the droughts. Two long...

Notevole è stato negli ultimi anni lo sforzo dell’intera comunità scientifica nel valutare l’impatto dei cambiamenti climatici nel ciclo dell’acqua soprattutto a scala regionale e locale. L’interesse pratico infatti risiede a scala di bacino laddove la gestione della risorsa acqua è più critica. Questo lavoro rappresenta lo sforzo congiunto di stim...
Article
The study of the environmental impact of water erosion, chemicals and nutrient transport by runoff water is very important to protect soil and water quality. It is possible to find much literature on this topic, but the survey data lack uniformity and represent many different agronomic or natural environments. This is due to the wide range of param...

Project
* The project aims to provide a space for discussion about the implementation of Directive 2007/60/EC on the assessment and management of flood risks. * Comments, case studies, technical reports and research papers are welcome. * Procedural and technical issues (e.g., methodology to address the impacts of climate change) may be discussed regarding all the phases of the Directive implementation, i.e.: - Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment; - Flood Hazard and Risk Maps; - Flood Risk Management Plan
Project
