CNR-IRPI is competence center for the National Department of Civil Protection, thus GMG is frequently called to provide technical and scientific support in emergency situations related to geo-hydrological hazards. Due to the specific expertise in monitoring activities, the involvement of GMG in emergency scenarios do not exclusively belong to the geo-hydrological instability, but they also encompass seismic and anthropic hazard related scenarios. In particular, the group has operated often in national emergency situations in the recent years.
These activities have strengthened the knowledge of the possible effects that a given extreme event can have over a particular territory. This aspect cannot be ignored to fill the gap between advanced research activities and the application of effective measures to manage and prevent geo-hydrological hazards.
