Programma sintetico Hydrology of Alpine areas is multifaceted, involving enhanced climatic forcing due to orography, soil response and runoff production, due to rainfall and snowmelt during spring. The presence of glaciers, also covered in debris and the water balance therein, also affects hydrology of the system. Liquid precipitation leads to hydrologic response over short time-scales (few hours to few days), thus providing flash floods. Snow precipitation is fundamental, as it influences over the short scales accumulation and redistribution of snow mass and water equivalent, including snow avalanches, while on longer scales it influences hydrological fluxes and water resources. Not last, Alpine areas hydrology is heavily impacted by transient climate change. The purpose of the course is to provide some basic tools for understanding and modelling the physical processes here mentioned. First, some theoretical basis will be given of snow and avalanche sciences, then the hydrological cycle of mountain areas will be addressed. Some case studies will be shown, drawn from the researches carried out at the Dept.ICA,Politecnico di Milano. Detailed programme will include Snow and its properties.Estimates of SWE using statistical methods.Stochastic modelling of snow precipitation. Snow avalanches. Stability of snow crust.Displacement, physical and statistical approach.Rheology of snow and dynamic modelling, use of a simple model (Voellmy-Salm). Meteo-hydrological monitoring of Alpine areas.In stream flux monitoring. Snow and ice melt, degree day approach and energy balances. Debris covered glaciers.Hydrological models for Alpine areas. Impact of climate change upon Alpine hydrology.
