Interests and Research#

Alberto Montanari focused his research activity on water resources management and flood risk mitigation, in the presence of environmental change and climate change. In particular, Alberto Montanari dedicated his attention to advanced methods for environmental management and engineering design in the presence of uncertainty, by bringing forward the idea that estimation of design variables in hydrology should always be associated to uncertainty assessment. To this end, Alberto Montanari proposed a blueprint for modelling uncertain hydrological systems, which is based on the concept of stochastic physically-based modelling that allow one to properly account for inherent uncertainty in hydrology.

By following a coherent path for modelling hydrological change, Alberto Montanari initiallly focused on statistical method for real-time prediction of precipitation, simulation techniques for hydrological variables observed at fine time scale, statistical methods for real time updating of flood forecasting and spatially distributed rainfall-runoff models.

Currently Alberto Montanari is concentrating on uncertainty assessment for hydrological models in the presence of hydrological change, identification of critical areas for flood risk, climate change impact assessment, flood frequency analysis, open science and data sharing.
