NEW: Courses on Climate Change and Adaptation - Spring 2022

Next Spring I am teaching two courses on climate change and adaptation at the University of Bologna. The courses will be delivered in hybrid mode, that is, in physical presence and streaming (delivery in streaming is pending the approval of the University, please check here for updates. However, video of the lectures will be made promptly available in any case).

The courses are:

Tutorials of Coastal Engineering - 2022-2023

The course on Coastal Engineering is included in the study plan of the master degree program in Off-shore Engineering at the University of Bologna. The part of course that I am teaching counts 12 hours of lectures. The teacher will make extensive use of interactivity, with the options illustrated below. Lectures include about 4 hours dedicated to solving exercises by using the personal computer, by collaborative work by students and teacher. Students will be kindly asked to bring their own personal computer to solve the exercises.

Scientific paper: Detection of trends in magnitude and frequency of flood peaks across Europe

The article Detection of trends in magnitude and frequency of flood peaks across Europe has been just published on the Hydrological Sciences Journal.

This study analyses the trends in magnitude and frequency of floods for the period 1965–2005 in several European sites. The paper has been selected as the featured article in Volume 63, Issue 4 of the journal.

The citation by Guenter Bloeschl at the Darcy Medal Ceremony

During my Darcy Medal ceremony my citationist was Guenter Bloeschl. I am very grateful to Guenter for delivering a very flattering citation, which I am copying here below (with Guenter's permission). During my career I had the fortune to meet amazing colleagues, at the University of Bologna, in the Italian community of hydrologists and engineers, and the scientific associations I am member of. In particular, I shared many research collaboration with Guenter and Demetris Koutsoyiannis.

EGU Darcy Medal Lecture: "Hydrology is important" - Vienna April 12, 2018

I had the great honor to be awarded the Darcy Medal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU). The award ceremony took place in Vienna, during the EGU General Assembly, on April 12, 2018. I delivered a medal lecture titled "Hydrology is important". It is a summary of my research experience and activity so far. It is also reporting some personal considerations and stories.

Science paper: Changing climate shifts timing of European floods

I had the opportunity to participate, together with Attilio Castellarin and several other researchers, to a study conducted by a team at the Technical University of Wien, showing that the timing of the floods has shifted across much of Europe. The sheds light on the influence of climate change on flood risk in Europe. The study was led by Prof. Guenter Bloeschl, who already cooperated with us in the past.  The results highlight that climate change has induced a shift in the timing of floods over the years.
