Research interest

The main research interest of Luca Brocca lies in the use of soil moisture observations obtained by in situ and satellite sensors for improving hydrological applications. Research interests are: (i) use of remote sensing observations (soil moisture, rainfall, water elevation, ...) for hydrological applications, (ii) use of soil moisture observations for rainfall-runoff modelling (data assimilation), landslide prediction, erosion, numerical weather prediction, ..., (iii) hydrologic and hydraulic modelling, (iv) flooding risk analysis and flood frequency assessment (under climate change), (v) analysis of soil moisture spatial-temporal variability. To support the research, an intense activity for the monitoring of hydro-meteorological quantities in experimental basins is carried out.

 

Biography


Luca Brocca was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1978. He received the M.Sc. degree in Environmental Engineering and the Ph.D. degree (the Ph.D. thesis, in Italian, can be downloaded here) in Civil Engineering, both with excellence, from the University of Perugia, Italy, in 2003 and 2008, respectively. Since 2003 he received a Scholarship and, successively, a Research Fellowship to carry research at the Research Institute of Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Perugia (Italy). Since 2009 he is a Researcher at CNR-IRPI.

He has been author and co-author of 57 journal referred papers (836 citations, H-index=15 with SCOPUS; 1322 citations, H-index=17 - September 2014) and 58 papers in peer-reviewed conference proceedings/book chapters. He has held +30 presentations at conference and workshops (9 as invited speaker), he served as chairman at EGU, ERB and PLINIUS conferences, and he participated to several seminars held by Italian and foreign professors. He serves as frequent reviewer for several (+35) international journals (e.g. JoH, WRR, HESS, NCOMM, HYP, AWR, EMS, JHE, RSE, ECOHYD, GEOD, JGR, IEEE GRSL...). He acts as Associate Editor for "GEODERMA" and the new "HYDROLOGY" journals. Guest editor for the special issue: "Hydrological Modeling: Beyond Runoff Calibration" on HYDROLOGY journal.

He actively participated to several research project in the frame of Italian and European programs and in collaboration with Italian and international institutions. In particular, in the period January-July 2010 he carried out an associated scientist activity, and currently he is involved, under the project "Satellite Application Facility on Support to Operational Hydrology and Water Management (H-SAF)" by EUMETSAT. He is involved in the agreement between H-SAF and GPM (Global Precipitation Measurement) mission by NASA, he is an Early Adopter of the forthcoming SMAP (Soil Moisture Active and Passive) mission by NASA, and he actively participates to the project "Climate Change Initiative - Soil Moisture" by ESA.

He is the Italian National Correspondent of the Euromediterranean network of Experimental and Representative Basins (ERB) and he is member of the Italian Hydrological Society (IHS), the Italian Group of Hydraulics (GII), the international Environmental Modelling and Software society (iEMSs) and the European Geophysical Union (EGU).

Hydrological Models (and others)


SM2RAIN (Matlab code, Global Rainfall Datasets)

SM2RAIN is a simple algorithm for estimating rainfall from soil moisture data. If you do not believe it is possible, try yourself!
The SM2RAIN code is freely available and can be downloaded here. The code is written in the MATLAB® programming language and is fully commented. The description of the method and of its performance can be found in Brocca et al. (2013). Three new rainfall products obtained from satellite soil moisture data through the SM2RAIN algorithm have been delivered (Brocca et al., 2014). Rainfall data have daily temporal resolution, 1-degree spatial resolution and are available for the period 2007-2012. The datasets can be downloaded here.
Here you can find a TALK and a POSTER showing the latest results with the applications of SM2RAIN. In the paper by Massari et al. (2014) it is shown that SM2RAIN-derived rainfall from in-situ soil moisture observations even improves flood modelling.

MISDc Rainfall-Runoff Model (and MILc)

A continuous rainfall-runoff model named MISDc ("Modello Idrologico SemiDistribuito in continuo") for flood prediction and forecasting was developed by myself (in collaboration with my colleagues); it is freely available and can be downloaded here. The code is written in the MATLAB® programming language and is fully commented; an executable version of the model is also available contacting myself. The description of the model structure and of its performance can be found in Brocca et al. (2010) and Brocca et al. (2011). Additionally, a fully continuous and lumped version of the MISDc model, called MILc ("Modello Idrologico Lumped in continuo") was made freely available here. The references for the model description and application are Brocca et al. (2011) and Brocca et al. (2013).

Soil Moisture Model

A continuous soil water balance model for the simulation of soil moisture temporal evolution was developed by myself (in collaboration with my colleagues); it is freely available and can be downloaded here. The code is written in the MATLAB® programming language and is fully commented. The description of the model structure and of its performance can be found in Brocca et al. (2008).

Neyman-Scott Rectangular Pulse Model

The Neyman-Scott Rectangular Pulse (NSRP) model for the generation of synthetic rainfall data was made freely available here. The code is written in the MATLAB® programming language and is fully commented. The description of the model structure and of its performance can be found in Camici et al. (2011), Tarpanelli et al. (2012) and Brocca et al. (2013).

FARIMA

The Fractionally differenced ARIMA model (FARIMA) model for the generation of synthetic temperature data was made freely available here. The code is written in the MATLAB® programming language and is fully commented. The description of the model structure and of its performance can be found in Camici et al. (2011).

Satellite vs in situ soil moisture observations

A simple code for the comparison of in situ and satellite soil moisture observations can be downloaded here. It performs: 1) Temporal co-location, 2) Exponential Filter (Soil Water Index), and 3) CDF matching. The code is written in the MATLAB® programming language and is fully commented. The description of the algorithm can be found in Brocca et al. (2011), Lacava et al. (2012).

Long-term (1989-2012) soil moisture data set

A long-term (1989-2012) hourly soil moisture data set was developed by applying the Soil Moisture Model to distributed in situ observations carried out in central Italy (Brocca et al., 2012). The data set can be freely downloaded here, more information on the procedure used for developing the data set can be found in Brocca et al. (2013).
