CAE as a sponsor of the Hydrology Days 2018

June 2018

The Hydrology Days of the Italian Hydrological Society will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the "Sapienza" University of Rome and are organized by: the DICEA (Department of Civil, Constructional and Environmental Engineering) of the "Sapienza" University of Rome and the Order of Engineers of Rome, together with the University of "Roma Tre", the University of Tuscia (Viterbo), the University of Perugia, the University for Foreigners of Perugia, the District Basin Authority of the Central Apennines, the National Civil Protection Department, the Superior Institute for Environmental Protection and Research, and the Italian Hydrotechnical Association - section of Central Italy.

According to an already consolidated approach, this edition, which takes place under the chairmanship of Eng. Tommaso Moramarco, will aim at strengthening the collaboration between the Hydrological Scientific Community, the Public Administration and professionals. The aim is to make clear and enhance the contribution of Hydrology to the different space and time scales for a correct action of prevention, mitigation and management of the hydrological-hydraulic risk in a highly evolving context, in order to evaluate both the hydrological forcing and the response of the territory and the environment.

Particularly, three sessions are scheduled, whose titles are the following: monitoring and analysis of hydrological forcing; evaluation of the hydrological response; adaptation and mitigation measures. As a sponsor, CAE will present one of its proposals for the mitigation of flood risk in urban areas, particularly focusing on the monitoring and alerting system for the protection of drive underpasses, where quick accumulations of water can trigger seriously dangerous situations for the occupants of the vehicles in transit. Underpasses are among the most vulnerable infrastructures, and the proposed systems are suitable to promptly report a flooding situation and consequently forbid the transit by activating the appropriate signs.

The detailed programme of these meetings is now available here.
