The paper presents the analysis of precipitation and temperature variations during the 1980-2010 period within the Province of Pesaro-Urbino and its effect on the water cycle, in terms of runoff and net infiltration changes. The aim is to develop a preliminary assessment of how runoff in the main catchments changed over the time, compared to a previous time-series (1950-69), representing the climate during a period of high socio-economic development, when most of the local water-supply infrastructures were designed and realized. The assessment is meant to suggest up-to date criteria to public regulators, especially intended to set new minimum flow constraints to specific river sections (DMV: minimum flow need for ecosystem, required by law), where impact of surface water withdrawals are more evident.

Abstract

The paper presents the analysis of precipitation and temperature variations during the 1980-2010 period within the Province of Pesaro-Urbino and its effect on the water cycle, in terms of runoff and net infiltration changes. The aim is to develop a preliminary assessment of how runoff in the main catchments changed over the time, compared to a previous time-series (1950-69), representing the climate during a period of high socio-economic development, when most of the local water-supply infrastructures were designed and realized. The assessment is meant to suggest up-to date criteria to public regulators, especially intended to set new minimum flow constraints to specific river sections (DMV: minimum flow need for ecosystem, required by law), where impact of surface water withdrawals are more evident.
