- 4/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 River basin morphology intrinsically contains an extraordinary amount of informa'on on ood-driven erosion and deposi'onal phenomena, cons'tu'ng a useful indicator of the ood exposure of a given area (e.g. Arnaud-FasseTa et al., 2009; Tucker et al., 2001; Tucker and Whipple, 2002) Geomorphic Approaches Flood Plain
- 5/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 Digital Elevation Models The advent of new technologies to measure topographic surface elevation (e.g., GPS, SAR, SAR interferometry, and laser altimetry) has given a strong impulse to the development of geomorphic approaches for valley bottoms identification using Digital Elevation Models (DEMs). Digital terrain model obtained through interferometric data gathered by the space shuTle campaign by NASA with a cell-size of 90m. (CGIAR-CSI: hTp://srtm.csi.cgiar.org/) ASTER GDEM 30m available from June 2009 (h=p://asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/gdem.asp )
- 6/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 Research Questions i)What are the most significant geomorphological features for the delineation of flood prone areas? ii)Is it possible to define a simplified approach for the delineation of flood prone areas starting from DEMs? iii)Is it possible to use such procedure to map the flood exposure over large scale?

- 9/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 The linear binary classifiers: Single Features The linear binary classifiers identifies areas subject to the flooding hazard using five single morphologic features and : 1. the contributing area, As [m2]; 2. the surface curvature, 2H [-]; 3. the local slope, S [-]; 4. the distance of each cell from the nearest stream, D [m]; 5. the relative elevation to the nearest stream, H [m].
- 10/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 The linear binary classifiers: Composite Indices 1. The modified topographic index (Manfreda et al., 2011) TIm= ln(Ad n/ tan()), where Ad is the drained area per unit contour length, tan() is the local gradient. 2. The downslope index, DWi, (Hjerdt et al., 2004) calculates how far (Ld ) a parcel of water has to travel along its flow path to lose a certain amount of potential energy (d). 3. The index H/D: the ratio between the flow distance D and elevation difference H. 4. The index ln(h(As)/H): the ratio between water depth h with the elevation difference H, where h is calculated using an hydraulic scaling relationship: h(As)As n.
- 11/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 The linear binary classifiers: composite indices 5. The index ln(h(At)/H), where h(At) is computed as a function of the contributing area At in the section of the drainage network hydrologically connected to the point under exam. 6. The index (h(At)-H)/tan(d): describes the change between water depth h(At) and the elevation difference H divided by the downslope index. 7. The index (h(At)-H)/D: this index aims to describe, in each point of the investigated basin, the change between water depth h(At) and the elevation difference H divided by the distance D.

The TRBA PAI was developed using high precision bathymetric surveys of the channel surveyed as cross sections with average spacing interval of 200-400 meters. This detailed fluvial morphology was used as main input of a 1D hydraulic models (HEC-RAS and FRESCURE). simulating the effect of the design hydrographs considering return periods of 50, 200, and 500 years.

- 18/18 ASCE-ICVRAM-ISUMA 2014 Ins'tute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, 13-16 July 2014 Conclusion The present study investigates the role of different morphological features and indices in the identification of flood-prone areas over the upper Tiber River basin. The indices that perform better are: the difference in elevation between the point considered and the source of risk (H), the downslope index (DWi) and the index ln(h(At)/H). The outcomes of the present study are particularly promising; especially considering the number of artificial modification that characterizes the Tiber River. Finally, geomorphic approaches represent a useful tool for preliminary studies on flood prone areas or to extend flood mapping over large areas.
