Course Type Integrated Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 16.0
Semester Second Semester
Course Description Scenario modeling in hydrogeological risk involve a multidisciplinary approach in order to analyze, forecast and define the evolution of landslides and flood hazards. 1.st part of the course will focus on the application of geology in engineering practice mainly for landslide evaluation and erosion evaluation. The syllabus of lectures covers the topics within the slope dynamic, including related field of geomorphological analysis, groundwater hydrology and the application of technical geology to the solution of problems in landslide risk. For slope dynamics the main topics are: the geological studies and hazard assessment for localized event and for diffuse processes. A particular focus on hazard analysis will be presented. During the course an emergency plan for hydrogeological hazards will be developed, selecting a mountain area as a test case: the skill of engineering geology, acquired in Scenario modeling in hydrogeological risk, will be applied to solve a real case. 2.nd modulus attendants will become familiar with topics and major issues concerning an emergency plan for hydrogeological risk in mountain regions. A field case is developed throught the modulus. Topics: Early warning systems. Short-term morphological modelling of mountain rivers. Flood models (2D). Flood damage evaluation. 3.rd modulus aims at presenting theory of emergency planning, in particular for hydrogeological hazards. Theoretical concepts are then put into practice by students by the development of a real emergency plan for a mountain test case area. One key objective of the laboratory is to make students understand the challenges implied in the development of a technical support (the plan) to orient human decisions and actions under stress. The plan that is to be developed must comprise the more technical information, including the one acquired and produced during the other course of the module "Hydrogeological risks in mountain areas" and more managerial aspects, for which organisational and social factors are central issues. This objective requires the ability to understand, elaborate and synthesise information coming from different disciplines into a usable and useful tool. Main contents of the course regard: Basics of emergency planning. What is an emergency plan. What are its main contents. Which are the main challenges. Examples of effective emergency plans. Complete event scenario developing. The complete event scenario as the base of emergency planning. How to build a complete event scenario. Examples of complete event scenarios. Flood damage: modelling. State of art damage models for the assessment of direct damage. Modelling social vulnerability. Modelling systemic vulnerability of lifelines. Translating vulnerabilities into damage/impacts Early warning systems. The "Total" Early Warning Systems concept. Monitoring and forecasting. Risk knowledge. Response capability. Dissemination and communication. Response planning. The Response as a dynamic process. The phases of the response. Resources allocation. Handling with uncertainty. Validation. Return to normalcy. Temporal scales, required knowledge and procedures.
