Material for the GEOframe Winter School - Rainfall-Runoff

Here we are introducing some modules for rainfall runoff modelling present in GEOframe. Some of them where actually refined for the Civil Protection of the Basilicata Region.


  • The set of sim files and the Jupyter notebook are here
  • The Python script by Christian Massari to create automatically the required subfolders. It is here.
