Due to the increase in extreme precipitation events and high concentration of the population and assets, the assessment of the vulnerability of urban areas to pluvial flooding under current and future climate and land-use scenarios is of paramount importance. Detailed hydrologic–hydraulic numerical modeling is resource intensive and, therefore, scarcely suitable for performing consistent hazard assessments across large urban settlements. Toward this aim, within the framework of the EIT Climate-KIC-founded research project SaferPLACES and based on the increasing availability of high-resolution DEMs (digital elevation models), we developed a fast-processing DEM-based algorithm accounting for spatially distributed rainfall and infiltration processes. The applications to two case studies in Northern Italy highlight the potential and limitations of the algorithm in identifying pluvial flood hazard hotspots. View this paper
