Compound weather events may lead to extreme impacts that can affect many aspects of society including agriculture. Identifying the underlying mechanisms that cause extreme impacts, such as crop failure, is of crucial importance to improve understanding and forecasting. In this study we investigate whether key meteorological drivers of extreme impac...

Floods are among the most common and impactful natural events. The hazard of a flood event depends on its peak (Q), volume (V) and duration (D), which are interconnected to each other. Here, we used a worldwide dataset of daily discharge, two statistics (Kendall’s tau and Spearman’s rho) and a conceptual hydrological rainfall-runoff model as model-...

Information about water level is essential for hydrological monitoring and flood/ drought risk assessment. In a large part of Italian river network, in situ instruments for measuring water level are rare or lacking. Here we consider the satellite measurements of water level retrieved by Copernicus altimetric missions (Sentinel 3A, Sentinel 3B, Jaso...

Compound events, like compound floods, have rapidly aroused interest due to the strong impacts associated with them. The spatial dependence has a fundamental role in the dynamics of these events, and causative investigations of their origins could contribute to elucidate their dynamics. Here, we addressed the pairwise spatial dependence between ann...

Commercial Microwave Links (CMLs) can be used as opportunistic and unconventional rainfall sensors by converting the received signal level into path-averaged rainfall intensity. Since in meteorology and hydrology the reliable reconstruction of the rainfall spatial distribution is still a challenging issue, there is a wide-spread interest in integra...

Despite the several sources of inaccuracy, commercial microwave links (CML) have been recently exploited to estimate the average rainfall intensity along the radio path from signal attenuation. Validating these measurements against “ground truth” from conventional rainfall sensors, as rain gauges, is a challenging issue due to the different spatial...

Plain Language Summary Meteorological connections are important issues of the climate system because they can help identifying geographic areas where compound weather events could occur. These are natural hazards characterized by extreme and devastating impacts. The typology of compound events (e.g., the co‐occurrence, or subsequence, of two floods...
