It is important to accurately identify the critical factors of flooding areas and organize adequate instruments for monitoring in real time the physical variables playing a vital role in triggering these catastrophic events.
In these cases an efficient reading of the rainfall intensity in real-time i.e. the rainfall rate in time unit is extremely useful. Retemet offers solutions for the so-called flash flooding characteristics of most of the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian coastal areas with a regime of torrent-like waters.
Predetermined thresholds on rainfall levels in mm per minute, and/or cumulative totals per hour/day, as maximum levels of streams/rivers will be implemented to ensure a prompt and updated monitoring through a computerized system.
A further key point of the scheme is the information system that will automatically translate the broadcast data into a practical and readable coding to be used by the council officers in charge, or all other bodies involved when a critical event is underway.
When fixed thresholds are exceeded, warnings and other useful data measured by the instruments will be sent to the authorized personnel in the following ways:
