Modelling Hazard of hYperconcentrated Mountain flows: a wEbgis SImulation System


PROJECT CO-FUNDED BY CARITRO (CAssa di RIsarmio TRento e ROvereto)


The project is co-funded by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto – CARITRO.

The MHYMESIS project promoted the scientific and technological research activities in the management and preservation of the environment.

MHYMESIS (Hazard Modelling of hYperconcentrated Mountain flows: a webGIS Simulation System), is an applied research project on the prevention of hydrogeological risk in mountain environment.

The MHYMESIS’ goal is the development of a modeling system for the study of alluvial extreme events that mobilize substantial amounts of solid material (solid hyperconcentrated and debris flows).

The forecasting system that will be realized will be one of governments and professional tool available for preventive delimitation of areas with danger and for the hydraulic design of mitigation works.

MHYMESIS will be developed using the most advanced computer simulation techniques and spatial data management available today.

The pool of research includes:

CUDAM (University Centre for Hydrogeological Defence in the mountains Environment), University of Trento

the Mountains basins  Service of the Autonomous Province of Trento

the Programming Department, Soil and Water Resources of the Autonomous Region of Valle d’Aosta

the Department of Structural Engineering, Construction and Geotechnical (DISEG) Politecnico di Torino

Trilogis Srl in Rovereto.

Project manager is prof. Giorgio Rosatti, CUDAM – University of Trento.
