Professor PAOLO PORTO
Objectives Within the professional education in Environmental and Forest Sciences, the course provides a basic and specific knowledge on:
- methods for watershed and hydrographic network characterization, estimation and measurement of sediment transport, analysis of criteria for bedslope stabilization and torrent control works design (with particular reference to the equilibrium bedslope evaluation in mountain torrents);
- study of grade-control structures (types of check-dams and sills) and criteria for their hydraulic and structural sizing.

Acquisition of knowledge on:
- basic tools as well as theoretical and practical methods for analysis of hydrological processes and design of river control works
- solution of the most relevant problems concerning control and mitigation of hydrogeological risks in agro-forest areas.
