Lecture notes for Climate Change Adaptation (Floods and Water Resources in a Changing Climate) 2024

Climate Change Adaptation (Floods and Water Resources in a Changing Climate for student of physics) is concentrating on strategies and actions to mitigate the impact of climate change on society, with a particular focus on water. The course will be taught with 48 hours of frontal teaching, including lectures given by the teacher and exercises developed by collaborative work by students and the teacher. The purpose of the course is to provide an overview of modern techniques for designing climate resilient environmental systems in the presence of human impact.

Degree and Ph.D. opportunities at Unibo

The Department of Civil, Chemical, Environmental and Material Engineering at the University of Bologna, where I teach and work as a researcher, offers several opportunities to foreign students. I believe studying in Bologna and Ravenna (where the University of Bologna has a campus and where I am teaching) is a great experience for a foreign student.

Degree programmes

If you are interested in degree programs (bachelor and master) offered by my Department, please refer to the following link:

Tutorials of Coastal Engineering - 2023-2024

The course on Coastal Engineering is included in the study plan of the master degree program in Off-shore Engineering at the University of Bologna. The part of course that I am teaching counts 12 hours of lectures. The teacher will make extensive use of interactivity, with the options illustrated below. Lectures include about 4 hours dedicated to solving exercises by using the personal computer, by collaborative work by students and teacher. Students will be kindly asked to bring their own personal computer to solve the exercises.

Lecture notes for "Climate change and global health" - University San Raffaele

"Climate change and global health" (CCGH) is a 12-hour module of the course on "Climate changing and architecture for health" at the University San Raffaele in Milan. I am teaching CCGH for the first time in the fall semester 2023.

The 12 hours of teaching will be delivered through in-presence frontal lectures. the study plan is as follows:

My live interview (in Italian) at the TRC TV on megaflood predictability

On November 27 I have been live interviewed by the TV channel TRC. The discussion focused on predictability of megafloods, after the publication of the Nature Geoscience paper  "Megafloods in Europe can be anticipated from observations in hydrologically similar catchments", authored by Miriam Bertola with a large pool of co-authors.

The interview can be watched here. The video has been kindly provided by TRC Bologna.

Thank you for your interest.

Article on Nature Italy and press coverage on the 2022 drought along the Po River

Nature Italy published an article by Ginevra Chelli titled "Po river drought in 2022 was the worst of the last two centuries", that comments on the results presented in the paper ""Why the 2022 Po River drought is the worst in the past two centuries" published in Science Advances, by myself, Hung Nguyen, Sara Rubinetti, Serena Ceola, Stefano Galelli, Angelo Rubino and Davide Zanchettin.

The paper was widely commented by the press. Please see:

Paper on Science Advances: Why the 2022 Po River drought is the worst in the past two centuries

The paper "Why the 2022 Po River drought is the worst in the past two centuries" by myself, Hung Nguyen, Sara Rubinetti, Serena Ceola, Stefano Galelli, Angelo Rubino and Davide Zanchettin has been just published by Science Advances. The paper is open access.

The study focuses on the extreme drought that in 2022 hit the Po River basin and attempts to understand its drivers.
