The specific goal of this research is to support the characterization of extreme precipitations phenomena on complex topography areas and of the climatic conditions that favor their occurrence, through high-resolution meteorological simulations on heterogeneous computing infrastructures, aiming at improving skills of operational hydro-meteorological warning systems. The topic will be focused on the a) execution of high-resolution meteorological simulations on high performance computing, cloud computing, and possibly grid computing solutions b) identification of optimal setup as a compromise between predictive capability skills and computing efficiency; c) adoption of standard based solutions for modelling results post-processing, and further chaining with hydrologic and impact models
