Papers of the conference which took place on July 6, 2009 at the Palazzo del Bo’ of the University of Padua on problems of geological and hydrological security in mountain environments in general and in the Province of Belluno in particular. This volume contains contributions on forecasting of flooding in the Piave river basin, studies on the capacity of the river bed, and hydrological phenomena.

This volume covers environmental problems which relate to water, swelling of rivers and streams in the plains and in cities, above that which takes place in mountains, which today represent a pressing reality. These problems implicate the necessity of taking into account parameters and phenomena that are generally poorly known and are thus difficult to predict. Today, due to increasing attention to prevention and civil protection connected with hydrological problems, instruments are available for forecasting. Hydraulic models based on description of geometry and topography of hydrological basins demonstrate a high level of trustworthiness in terms of simulation of response of a basin to intense precipitation events, as is demonstrated in the chapters contained in this volume. After a preface by Andrea Rinaldo, the chapters are listed as follows: “La difesa dalle piene del Lago di Santa Croce, Belluno” (University of Padua); “Processi idrologici di versante: osservazioni di campo e modellazione matematica” (University of Padua); “Fra meandering e braiding: isole e variazioni di larghezza come elementi distintivi delle morfologie di transizione” (University of Trent); “Verso una cultura a fondo mobile nella progettazione di interventi di sistemazione fluviale” (University of Genoa).
