Experimental Hydrological Database for Apennine Basins
Period: 2014 – 2015
Partners: Research Institute for Geo-Hydrological Protection (CNR-IRPI); University of Padova, Department of Land Environment, Agriculture and Forestry (UniPD).
Description: The key objectives of the project, developed in the context of the program Nextdata funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), are:
- collection, organization and analysis of the available hydro-meteorological and climate data for the characterization of the meteo-climate evolution in Apennine mountain areas;
- extensive experimental campaigns for soil moisture monitoring in hillslope portions and streamflow measurements in river sites.
Two pilot areas have been selected: 1) Upper Chiascio River Basin, inland area located in the Umbria region territory; 2) Magra River basin, located between Liguria and Tuscany region.
The available hydrological-meteorological data and the outcomes of the field campaigns will be gathered into a geo-database following common specifications in accordance with the standard of NextData.
