Watershed Description:Upper Tiber River Basin is located between 42.6–43.85N and 11.8–12.92E in the Umbria region of Central Italy. It covers an area of 4145 km^2 (20% of the Tiber Basin) with an elevation ranging from 145 to 1560m a.s.l. (Figure 1). The area is predominantly mountainous, and land locked with the Italian Apennine in the eastern part represents an important physical boundary that causes variability in precipitation and temperature. Because of the topography and intense rainfall in the upstream of the Ponte Nuovo outlet, the downstream reach experiences frequent floods. The basin is drained by the main Tiber River emanating near the Montecoronaro and the Chiascio and Topino Rivers from the left side. Figure 1 shows the location, topographic setting and subbasins boundaries used in the modelling process. eologically, the catchment is predominated by low-permeability formations (flysch sandstone clay, clay and sandstone and limestone clay).
