Partner offer (competences/expertise)

We are building a wide partnership in Italy, but we are looking for possible partners in EU on flood risk under climate change.

Salvatore Manfreda will be at the meeting in Bruxelles the 31 of May and anyone is very welcome to contact me to talk and discuss about possible interactions.

Our research group have a significant experience on water related issues with particular emphasis on flood prediction, delineation of flood prone areas, stochastic processes in hydrology, pier scour, space-time rainfall and soil moisture dynamics, plant physiology, vegetation patterns, remote sensing and use of UAS in hydrological monitoring.

Relevant Projects:
Research Contract "PCBAS2" for the construction of an Early Warning System of the Civil Protection of the Basilicata region ( , period 2015-2018);
Project Smart Basilicata ( - 2014-2018);
Project "Technologies to stabilize soil organic carbon and farm productivity, promote waste value and climate change mitigation - CarbOnFarm" LIFE12 ENV/IT/00719;
Project COSMO-SkyMed AO: "Use of COSMO-SkyMed SAR data for landcover classification and surface parameters retrieval over agricultural sites" (2009-2011);
MEDDMAN project “Integrated water resources management, development and confrontation of common and transnational methodologies for combating drought” (2006-07);
Project “Space-time Variability of Soil Moisture of the Cooperative Institute for Climate Science (Princeton University and NOAA)” (2004-05);
Project COS(OT) "Osservazione della terra" (2001-04).
