UNISTRAPG worked with Regione Lazio (Dipartimento Istituzionale e Territorio) and Tiber River Basin Water Authority (Autorità di Bacino del fiume Tevere) for the development of an applied research project concerning the use of GIS and 2D hydraulic modelling for flood risk management and mapping of the Tiber river upstream of the city of Rome (Orte-Castel Giubileo domain). Ad-hoc hydrogeomorphic models were developed for providing the forcing inputs of a detailed 2D hydraulic model. Maximum flow depth, flow velocities and hazard maps were produced considering different hydrological scenarios in different configurations: Ante Operam and Post Operam in the hypothesis of different detention reservoirs as compensation of potential levee construction along the study area.

This funded project was completed at the end of 2016.
