Purpose
Hydrometeorological extremes in the Mediterranean: intense rain events and subsequent flash-floods How can we improve forecasting of the most extreme rain events among the family of intense events? How can we improve forecasting of the hydrological response in a distributed way at the regional scale as a function of the continental surfaces characteristics (topography, geology, land use…) and initial state (soil moisture)? How can we mitigate the societal impact of such extreme events? How are these extreme events going to evolve in the coming century as the result of climate change and growing anthropic pressure?
History
Mediterranean catchment studied since 2008. Three gauged stations and one rain gauge
