International Hydrology Series : Floods in a Changing Climate: Inundation Modelling, Hardback Book

International Hydrology Series : Floods in a Changing Climate: Inundation Modelling Hardback

Description

Flood inundation models enable us to make hazard predictions for floodplains, mitigating increasing flood fatalities and losses.

This book provides an understanding of hydraulic modelling and floodplain dynamics, with a key focus on state-of-the-art remote sensing data, and methods to estimate and communicate uncertainty.

Academic researchers in the fields of hydrology, climate change, environmental science and natural hazards, and professionals and policy-makers working in flood risk mitigation, hydraulic engineering and remote sensing will find this an invaluable resource.

This volume is the third in a collection of four books on flood disaster management theory and practice within the context of anthropogenic climate change.

The others are: Floods in a Changing Climate: Extreme Precipitation by Ramesh Teegavarapu, Floods in a Changing Climate: Hydrological Modeling by P.

P. Mujumdar and D. Nagesh Kumar and Floods in a Changing Climate: Risk Management by Slodoban Simonovic.
