Abstract Share this page

In the first hours of the morning on September 15th 2001, a squall line and a subsequent NW cold front caused sequentially a rainfall on Naples and Pozzuoli of about 150 mm. This extreme event was clustered in two very intense showers (with a mean intensity larger than 50 mm/h) occurred between 01:40 and 02:30 and 03:20 and 04:00 UTC. The comparison with the historical events, recorded at different Public and Research Institutions, has allowed the classification of such an event as the maximum shower-type rain fallen in Naples since 1866 during a 3 hour interval.
