Comparative analysis of runoff coefficients of extreme events in Italy

Research Groups IDROLOGIA
Thesis type NUMERICAL, EXPERIMENTAL
Description The Italian territory is often affected by the occurrence of extreme flood events that are very localised in time and space. When reconstructing the characteristics of the events, one wonders how characterize the soil infiltration, often summarised in the value of the runoff coefficient.
In this thesis, pairs of events distant in time and space, but characterised by runoff coefficient values close to 1, are investigated.
Relationships will be built with the geo-morphological characteristics of the basins and with soil moisture features prior to the event.
