In order to diminish the degree of flood hazard, it is necessary to acquire more geological information, particularly about the predisposing causes. As known, the exogen changes and their control are linked with the regional tectonic structures, hence it is important to identify them. Indeed, the reconstruction of a geomechanical-fracturing model of the rock substratum can be the main element to localize the lowering plane areas that probably draw the flood. For this purpose, the RS-multispectral satellite image interpretation becomes the more suitable method. It was applied over a test area SE of Turin (Piedmont, NorthWest Italy) where localized floods systematically occurred. The identified tectonic model shows that the lowering structural areas correspond also to the flooded depressions.
