MIARIA (Adaptive hydrogeological Monitoring system supporting Alpine Integrated Risk plan)

The project aims at building innovative systems and technologies for distributed acquisition of territorial data and their communication to second generation operative centers. Such data will be aggregated on a phenomenological basis and dynamic risk scenarios will be generated for alpine cross-border areas paying particular attention Domino Effect. In particular the specific distributed monitoring action - based on Wireless Sensor Network technologies (complementing existing monitoring points) will provide data necessary to build a dynamic risk map of the specific area. This dynamic risk map is integrated with a static map of the technological and networking risk present in the territories so to eventually provide an Alpine Area Integrated Risk Plan with dynamic characteristics. Furthermore the monitoring system allows dynamic forecasting of risk immediately before emergency situations as it will be possible to collect real time information from the field.
