Short summary
This paper shows results related to the monitoring of an extensive green roof (GR), the development of a rainfall-runoff model and the analysis of large-scale impact of GR by modelling different basins. Large-scale modelling (basins ranging from 0.03 ha to several square kilometers) showed that the widespread use of GRs reduced peak flows (volumes) around 57% (48%) at source and 38% (32%) at the basin scale. These findings show that GR is a good option to cope with urbanization impact.
