Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate flood hazards through the use of quantitative pregeomorphic methods, which were already applied to estimate mass movement hazards and accelerated erosion hazards in some Italian areas. The study area is the Fiume Ombrone drainage basin (Central Italy), where wide zones of the main valley floors have been recently flooded. In the last decade of the past century the frequency of these hazardous events has increased. Results obtained allowed the identification of zones prone to flood hazard and the evaluation of their hazard index. - (NF)
