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.

Tutorials of Sustainable Design of Water Resources Systems - 2022

Sustainable Design of Water Resources Systems is concentrating on the management of water resources in the presence of increasing anthropogenic pressure and climate change. The course will be taught during 48 hours of frontal teaching, including lectures given by the teacher and exercises developed by collaborative work by students and the teacher. The purpose of the course is to provide an overview of modern techniques for estimating design variables for water resources systems in the presence of human impact.

Tutorials of Science of Climate Change and Climate Actions 2022

"Science of Climate Change and Climate Actions" is a soft skill course at the University of Bologna. It will be taught in English for a total of 24 hours (3 credits) in the second semester, by me and other expert colleagues from other Departments. Details are given here. Access is given to a maximum number of 200 students. The study plan is as follows:

1st Workshop on "Novel hydrological concepts for the engineering practice", Bologna, September 29, 2021

The Workshop "Novel hydrological concepts for the engineering practice" has taken place in Bologna on September 29, 2021. It has been organised to celebrate the degree Honoris Causa in Environmental Engineering that has been awarded by the University of Bologna to Günter Blöschl. The emergency due to COVID19 imposed a severe restriction to the number of attendants and therefore the audience was not large.

My presentation (in Italian) to the "Hydrology Days 2021" titled "Bluecat: Un metodo innovativo per studiare l’incertezza di previsioni di deflussi fluviali", Naples October 1, 2021
