Hydrometeorological extremes : processes, models and human impacts

Summer school — University of Cagliari (Italy)

Lieu et date : Cagliari (Italy) – July 6–12, 2017

Organisation  : The summer schood is organized with the sponsorship of the Italian Hydrological Society (SII), the Hydraulic Italian Group (GII), and the Italian Universities Consortium for Hydrology (CINID),

Présentation
The summer school is addressed to PhD students and young researchers. The course is organized in two modules : “Hydrological extremes and human societies” with lecturer Prof. Giuliano Di Baldassarre (Uppsala University, Sweden) and “The WRF-Hydro modeling system” with lecturer Prof. Giuseppe Mascaro (Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ). The school is free of charge, but participants should cover their travel and accomodation expenses.

Description

Module 1 - Hydrological extremes and human societies (July 6-8, 2017)
This module will cover the following specific topics : • Alteration of hydrological extremes (droughts and floods) caused by land-use changes and urbanization. • Impact of policies and engineering measures (e.g. reservoirs) implemented by societies to cope with droughts. • Impact of policies and engineering (e.g. levees) implemented by societies to cope with floods. • Risk governance and societal response to hydrological extremes. • The role of culture, technology, economy and climate in shaping the dynamic interplay between hydrology and society. • Interdisciplinary frameworks to study dynamics human-water systems, e.g. socio-hydrology.

Module 2 – The WRF-Hydro modeling system (July 10-12, 2017)
This module will cover the following specific topics : • Conceptualization and structure of the WRF-Hydro system • Description of physics components options within WRF-Hydro • Model porting and compilation and overview of parallel computing with WRF-Hydro • Model input data preparation • Model configuration and execution • Visualization and post-processing of model outputs • Case studies
