University of Padova (UniPad): Partner 16

University of PadovaThe Department of Land and Agroforest Environments at the University of Padova is an international centre of education and research in the agricultural and environmental sciences. The Water Resources Section of the Department carries out fundamental and applied research in the field of hydrology, water resources and watershed management. Active research areas include hydrologic analysis and modelling, coupled hydrometeorological modelling and hydrometeorological monitoring system design (including radar hydrology), coupled hydrological and landslide modelling, extreme flood hydrology, snow accumulation and melt, geomorphology and risk-based decision analysis for water quantity and quality management, application of hydro-informatics and Geographic Information System to hydrologic systems. A Master Course on “Hydrogeological risk assessment and mitigation” is organised each year by the Department, in collaboration with UNESCO and the National Research Council of Italy.

The Section has been widely involved in FP-V European research projects, such as DAMOCLES (Debrisfall Assessment in MOuntain Catchments for Local End-Users) and MITCH (Concerted Action on Mitigation of Climate-Induced Natural Hazards). Among the EU funded and recently completed projects, there are EUROTAS (European River Flood Occurrence and Total Risk Assessment), RIBAMOD (Concerted Action on River Basin Modelling, Management and Flood Mitigation) and EROSLOPE II, funded under the Framework Programme IV. The Section has a staff of about 15 scientists, including two full Professors. The Section’s infrastructure includes modern UNIX system workstations network and direct access to the central computing infrastructure of the University.
