Gianbattista Bussi is a PhD student of the Hydraulic and Environmental Engineering Programme of the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) since 2009. He works in the field of distributed hydrological modelling, and his main research activity focuses on erosion and sediment yield modelling at the catchment scale.
The awarded poster presents the results of a preliminary implementation of the TETIS-SED model coupled with palaeohydrological techniques for the reconstruction of the hydological and sediment regime in a Mediterranean catchment with no sediment data available.
