  • Effects of damaging hydrogeological events on people throughout 15 years
           in a Mediterranean region

    • Abstract: Effects of damaging hydrogeological events on people throughout 15 years in a Mediterranean region
      Luigi Aceto, A. Aurora Pasqua, and Olga Petrucci
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 67-77, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-67-2017, 2017
      Damaging Hydrogeological Events (DHE) are defined as rainy periodsduring which landslides and floods can damage people. The paper investigatedthe effects of DHE on people living in Calabria (southern Italy) in theperiod 2000–2014, using data coming from the systematic survey of regionalnewspapers. Data about fatalities, people injured and peopleinvolved (not killed neither hurt) were stored in the database namedPEOPLE, made of three sections: (1) event identification, (2) victim-eventinteraction, (3) effects on people. The outcomes highlighted vulnerabilityfactors related to gender and age: males were killed more frequently (75 %)than females (25 %), and fatalities were older (average age 49 years) thaninjured (40.1 years) and involved people (40.5 years). The average ages offemales killed (67.5 years), injured (43.4 years) and involved (44.6 years)were higher than the same values assessed for males, maybe indicating thatyounger females tended to be more cautious than same-age males, while olderfemales showed an intrinsic greater vulnerability. Involved people wereyounger than injured people and fatalities, perhaps because younger peopleshow greater promptness to react in dangerous situations. In the studyregion, floods caused more fatalities (67.9 %), injured (55 %) andinvolved people (55.3 %) than landslides. Fatalities and injuries mainlyoccurred outdoor, especially along roads, and the most dangerous dynamic wasto be dragged by flood, causing the majority of fatalities(71.4 %). These outcomes can be used to strengthen the strategies aimed atsaving people, and to customise warning campaigns according to the local riskfeatures and people's behaviour. The results can improve the understanding ofthe potential impacts of geo-hydrological hazards on the population and canincrease risk awareness among both administrators and citizens.

  • Radar–rain-gauge rainfall estimation for hydrological
           applications in small catchments

    • Abstract: Radar–rain-gauge rainfall estimation for hydrological applications in small catchments
      Salvatore Gabriele, Francesco Chiaravalloti, and Antonio Procopio
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 61-66, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-61-2017, 2017
      The accurate evaluation of the precipitation's time–spatialstructure is a critical step for rainfall–runoff modelling. Particularly forsmall catchments, the variability of rainfall can lead to mismatched results.Large errors in flow evaluation may occur during convective storms,responsible for most of the flash floods in small catchments in theMediterranean area. During such events, we may expect large spatial andtemporal variability. Therefore, using rain-gauge measurements only can beinsufficient in order to adequately depict extreme rainfall events. In thiswork, a double-level information approach, based on rain gauges and weatherradar measurements, is used to improve areal rainfall estimations forhydrological applications. In order to highlight the effect thatprecipitation fields with different level of spatial details have onhydrological modelling, two kinds of spatial rainfall fields were computedfor precipitation data collected during 2015, considering both rain gaugesonly and their merging with radar information. The differences produced bythese two precipitation fields in the computation of the areal mean rainfallaccumulation were evaluated considering 999 basins of the region Calabria,southern Italy. Moreover, both of the two precipitation fields were used tocarry out rainfall–runoff simulations at catchment scale for mainprecipitation events that occurred during 2015 and the differences betweenthe scenarios obtained in the two cases were analysed. A representative casestudy is presented in detail.

  • Diversity of Rainfall Thresholds for early warning of hydro-geological
           disasters

    • Abstract: Diversity of Rainfall Thresholds for early warning of hydro-geological disasters
      Davide L. De Luca and Pasquale Versace
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 53-60, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-53-2017, 2017
      For early warning of disasters induced by precipitation (such as floods and landslides), different kinds of rainfall thresholds are adopted, which vary from each other, on the basis on adopted hypotheses. This work briefly discusses different schemes of rainfall thresholds, focusing attention on landslide prediction, with some applications to a real case study in Calabria region (southern Italy).

  • Detection of heat and cold waves in Montevergine
           time series (1884–2015)

    • Abstract: Detection of heat and cold waves in Montevergine time series (1884–2015)
      Vincenzo Capozzi and Giorgio Budillon
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 35-51, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-35-2017, 2017
      The extreme temperature events, the heat and cold waves, besides to have a significant impact on human health and activities, have negative influences also on mountain ecosystems. This work provides a characterization of heat and cold waves variability and trends in high-elevation sites of Central Mediterranean area, by using the long-term temperature time series collected in Montevergine. Main results highlight a positive trend in heat waves frequency and severity in the last 40 years.

  • Probabilistic flood inundation mapping at ungauged streams due to
           roughness coefficient uncertainty in hydraulic modelling

    • Abstract: Probabilistic flood inundation mapping at ungauged streams due to roughness coefficient uncertainty in hydraulic modelling
      George Papaioannou, Lampros Vasiliades, Athanasios Loukas, and Giuseppe T. Aronica
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 23-34, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-23-2017, 2017
      Probabilistic flood inundation mapping at ungauged streams due to roughness coefficient uncertainty in hydraulic modelling. The results of this study show that the proposed procedure supports probabilistic flood hazard mapping at ungauged rivers and provides water resources managers with valuable information for planning and implementing flood risk mitigation strategies.

  • Combining regional rainfall frequency analysis and rainfall-runoff
           modelling to derive frequency distributions of peak flows in ungauged
           basins: a proposal for Sicily region (Italy)

    • Abstract: Combining regional rainfall frequency analysis and rainfall-runoff modelling to derive frequency distributions of peak flows in ungauged basins: a proposal for Sicily region (Italy)
      Brunella Bonaccorso, Giuseppina Brigandì, and Giuseppe Tito Aronica
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 15-22, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-15-2017, 2017
      A Monte Carlo approach for deriving flood frequency curves in ungauged basins in Sicily region (Italy) is proposed. The procedure consists of: (i) a regional frequency analysis of extreme rainfall series, combined with Huff curves-based synthetic hyetographs, for design storms and (ii) a rainfall-runoff model, based on the Time-Area technique, to generate synthetic hydrographs. Validation of the procedure is carried out on four gauged river basins in Sicily (Italy) with promising results.

  • Human-flood interactions in Rome over the past 150 years

    • Abstract: Human-flood interactions in Rome over the past 150 years
      Giuliano Di Baldassarre, Smeralda Saccà, Giuseppe Tito Aronica, Salvatore Grimaldi, Alessio Ciullo, and Massimiliano Crisci
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 9-13, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-9-2017, 2017
      Throughout history, the city of Rome has experienced numerous flooding events from the Tiber river. Ancient Rome mostly developed on the hills, while the Tiber’s floodplain was mainly used for agricultural purposes. Instead, many people live nowadays in modern districts in the Tiber’s floodplain, often unaware of their exposure to potentially flooding. This research work aims to explore the dynamics of changing flood risk between these two opposite pictures of ancient and contemporary Rome.

           Augusta, eastern Sicily, Italy) – assessment of the related tsunamigenic
           potential

    • Abstract: Earthquake-triggered landslides along the Hyblean-Malta Escarpment (off Augusta, eastern Sicily, Italy) – assessment of the related tsunamigenic potential
      Maria Ausilia Paparo, Alberto Armigliato, Gianluca Pagnoni, Filippo Zaniboni, and Stefano Tinti
      Adv. Geosci., 44, 1-8, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-44-1-2017, 2017
      Eastern Sicily is affected by earthquakes and tsunamis of localand remote origin, which is known through numerous historical chronicles.Recent studies have put emphasis on the role of submarine landslides as thedirect cause of the main local tsunamis, envisaging that earthquakes (in 1693and 1908) did produce a tsunami, but also that they triggered mass failuresthat were able to generate an even larger tsunami. The debate is still open,and though no general consensus has been found among scientists so far, thisresearch had the merit to attract attention on possible generation oftsunamis by landslides off Sicily. In this paper we investigate the tsunamipotential of mass failures along one sector of the Hyblean-Malta Escarpment(HME). facing Augusta. The HME is the main offshore geological structure ofthe region running almost parallel to the coast, off eastern Sicily. Here,bottom morphology and slope steepness favour soil failures. In our work westudy slope stability under seismic load along a number of HME transects byusing the Minimun Lithostatic Deviation (MLD) method, which is based on thelimit-equilibrium theory. The main goal is to identify sectors of the HMEthat could be unstable under the effect of realistic earthquakes. We estimatethe possible landslide volume and use it as input for numerical codes tosimulate the landslide motion and the consequent tsunami. This is animportant step for the assessment of the tsunami hazard in eastern Sicily andfor local tsunami mitigation policies. It is also important in view oftsunami warning system since it can help to identify the minimum earthquakemagnitude capable of triggering destructive tsunamis induced by landslides,and therefore to set up appropriate knowledge-based criteria to launch alertto the population.

      AlpArray is a collaborative seismological project in Europe that includes ~ 50 research institutes and seismological observatories. At its heart is the collection of top-quality seismological data from a dense network of stations in the Alpine region: the AlpArray Seismic Network (AASN). We report the Swiss contribution: site selections, installation, data quality and management. We deployed 27 temporary BB stations across 5 countries as result of a fruitful collaboration between 5 institutes.

  • AlpArray in Austria and Slovakia: technical realization, site description
           and noise characterization

    • Abstract: AlpArray in Austria and Slovakia: technical realization, site description and noise characterization
      Florian Fuchs, Petr Kolínský, Gidera Gröschl, Götz Bokelmann, and the AlpArray Working Group
      Adv. Geosci., 43, 1-13, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-43-1-2016, 2016
      For comparison and as guideline for future seismic experiments we describe our efforts during the installation of thirty temporary seismic stations in Eastern Austria and Western Slovakia. The stations – deployed in the framework of the AlpArray project – are commonly placed in abandoned or unused cellars or buildings. We describe the technical realization of the deployment and discuss the seismic noise conditions at each site and potential relations to geology or station design.

  • Relationships between tuna catch and variable frequency
           oceanographic conditions

    • Abstract: Relationships between tuna catch and variable frequency oceanographicconditions
      Franklin Isaac Ormaza-González, Alejandra Mora-Cervetto, and Raquel María Bermúdez-Martínez
      Adv. Geosci., 42, 83-90, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-42-83-2016, 2016
      This Paper endeavors to find or understand the relationships between tuna landings and dramatic events as El Niño in the Central Eastern Pacific and visualize the impact of long term oscillations, like the Pacific decadal Oscillation (PDO). Here for the first time tuna landing, fish efforts and the El Niño indexes (ONI and MEI) are correlated to find how the later affect the tuna fishery. Special attention has been put on tuna landings in Ecuador.

  • Tropical and Extratropical predictions of the summer and autumn
           Niño3.4 Index: a comparison

    • Abstract: Tropical and Extratropical predictions of the summer and autumn Niño3.4Index: a comparison

      Adv. Geosci., 42, 73-81, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-42-73-2016, 2016
      We investigate the factors that determine the longer lead ENSO predictability in the 1980-2012 period. We compare different versions of the prediction model using some variables that contain tropical or extratropical information.We observe that where tropical predictors are used the prediction reproduces only the equatorial characteristics of the warming (cooling). However, where extratropical predictors are included, the predictions are able to simulate the absorbed warming in the SPCZ.

  • Can small pelagic fish landings be used as predictors of
           high-frequency oceanographic fluctuations in the 1–2 El Niño region?

    • Abstract: Can small pelagic fish landings be used as predictors of high-frequencyoceanographic fluctuations in the 1–2 El Niño region?
      Franklin Isaac Ormaza-González, Alejandra Mora-Cervetto, Raquel María Bermúdez-Martínez, Mario Armando Hurtado-Domínguez, Manuel Raúl Peralta-Bravo, and Viviana Mariuxi Jurado-Maldonado
      Adv. Geosci., 42, 61-72, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-42-61-2016, 2016
      The paper originally presented a different approach to using the El Niño indexes (ONI and MEI) in relation to small pelagic landings in Ecuador. Apart from finding relationships from a statistical point of view, the results of present work give an idea how much high- and low-frequency events can affect these fisheries, which are very important for the Ecuadorian economy and an employment asset. These results will enable fishermen and fish resource managers to somehow see ahead in a short time.

  • The progression of the boreal winter monsoon through the western
           Maritime Continent as differentiated by ENSO phase

    • Abstract: The progression of the boreal winter monsoon through the western MaritimeContinent as differentiated by ENSO phase
      Shao-Yi Lee and John L. McBride
      Adv. Geosci., 42, 51-60, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-42-51-2016, 2016
      Weather forecasters in Maritime Continent countries base their weekly outlooks on the seasonal progression of the monsoon wind systems. The onset of the monsoon was compared between El Niño and La Niña years using satellite sea surface winds. Rather than being delayed throughout the Maritime Continent during El Niño years, the monsoon was seen to arrive faster at and remain longer over the western Maritime Continent, and therefore delayed for the eastern Maritime Continent.

  • Interannual variability of the midsummer drought in Central America and
           the connection with sea surface temperatures

    • Abstract: Interannual variability of the midsummer drought in Central America and the connection with sea surface temperatures
      Tito Maldonado, Anna Rutgersson, Eric Alfaro, Jorge Amador, and Björn Claremar
      Adv. Geosci., 42, 35-50, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-42-35-2016, 2016
      We studied the relationship between the midsummer drought (MSD) in Central America, and the sea surface temperatures (SST) of the neighbouring ocean in interannual scales. Besides, the motivation of this study is also to provide a systematic method for forecasting the MSD period. We found that the intensity and the magnitude of the MSD shown a strong association with the contrast in the surface temperatures between the eastern tropical Pacific, and the tropical north Atlantic.

  • "SeismoSAT" project results in connecting seismic data centres via
           satellite

    • Abstract: "SeismoSAT" project results in connecting seismic data centres via satellite
      Damiano Pesaresi, Wolfgang Lenhardt, Markus Rauch, Mladen Živčić, Rudolf Steiner, Michele Bertoni, and Heimo Delazer
      Adv. Geosci., 41, 83-87, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-41-83-2016, 2016
      Since 2002 OGS in Italy, ZAMG in Austria and ARSO in Slovenia were exchanging seismic data in real time via internet. This was not good for civil defense scopes because internet is not reliable: therefore, in 2012 the Protezione Civile di Bolzano in Italy joined OGS, ZAMG and ARSO in the Interreg IV Italia-Austria "SeismoSAT" project aimed in connecting the seismic data centers in real time via satellite.

  • An assessment of El Niño and La Niña impacts focused on monthly and
           seasonal rainfall and extreme dry/precipitation events in mountain regions
           of Colombia and México

    • Abstract: An assessment of El Niño and La Niña impacts focused on monthly and seasonal rainfall and extreme dry/precipitation events in mountain regions of Colombia and México
      María Carolina Pinilla Herrera and Carlos Andrés Pinzón Correa
      Adv. Geosci., 42, 23-33, https://doi.org/10.5194/adgeo-42-23-2016, 2016
      This paper reports the results of our study about the El Niño and La Niña impacts on local monthly and seasonal precipitation, and the occurrence of extreme dry/precipitation events on mountain regions exposed to several climate variability processes in Colombia and México. We did this research because we work on rural studies and this kind of climate analyses can be usefull for the development of strategies to improve crop production and resource management by local stackeholders and farmers.
