Flood Risk and Flood hazard maps ? Visualisation of hydrological risks

  title={Flood Risk and Flood hazard maps ? Visualisation of hydrological risks},
  author={K Spachinger and Wolfgang Dorner and Rudolf Metzka and Kamal Serrhini and Sven Fuchs},
Hydrological models are an important basis of flood forecasting and early warning systems. They provide significant data on hydrological risks. In combination with other modelling techniques, such as hydrodynamic models, they can be used to assess the extent and impact of hydrological events. The new European Flood Directive forces all member states to evaluate flood risk on a catchment scale, to compile maps of flood hazard and flood risk for prone areas, and to inform on a local level about… 

The development of flood map in Malaysia

In Malaysia, flash floods are common occurrences throughout the year in flood prone areas. In terms of flood extent, flash floods affect smaller areas but because of its tendency to occur in densely

Communicating flood risk to the public by cartography

Flood risk communication plays an important role in risk management, because it can strengthen people’s risk awareness and can motivate them to take precautionary actions. To inform the public about

Flood Hazard and Risk Mapping by Applying an Explainable Machine Learning Framework Using Satellite Imagery and GIS Data

Flooding is one of the most destructive natural phenomena that happen worldwide, leading to the damage of property and infrastructure or even the loss of lives. The escalation in the intensity and

Comprehensive analysis of sustainable flood retention basins

To adapt to climate change which results in increasing flood frequency and intensity, the European Community has proposed Flood Directive 2007/60/EC. It requires member states to conduct risk

Scale‐invariant rainstorm hazard modelling for slopeland warning

Periods characterized by heavy rain and storms can trigger Multiple Damaging Hydrological Events (MDHE), in turn developing flooding, erosion, downpours and other phenomena affecting human habitats

Incorporating Uncertainty of the System Behavior in Flood Risk Assessment—Sava River Case Study

This paper proposes a framework for evaluation of the sources of uncertainty that can disrupt the flood emergency response process. During the flood response, flood emergency managers usually choose

Exploring local risk managers' use of flood hazard maps for risk communication purposes in Baden-Württemberg

In response to the EU Floods Directive (2007/60/EC), flood hazard maps are currently produced all over Europe, reflecting a wider shift in focus from "flood protection" to "risk management", for

High-accuracy mapping of inundations induced by ice-jams: a case study from Iceland

Hydraulic modelling is widely used for deriving flood hazard maps featuring depth of flooding and flow velocity from discharge scenarios. Due to uncertainties about flow conditions or inaccurate

Urban hazards management: A case study of Langat river basin, Peninsular Malaysia

The escalating impact of the disasters that occur in urban areas requires significant attention and planning in order to minimize vulnerability and disaster risk. However, efforts made to minimize

Avalanche risk assessment – a multi-temporal approach, results from Galtür, Austria

A multi-temporal risk assessment is presented for three avalanche tracks in the municipality of Galtur, Austria to better understanding of the today's risk by identifying the main changes and the underlying processes.

Aspects of integral risk management in practice: Considerations with respect to mountain hazards in Switzerland

All types of planning that involve land use (e.g. settlements, industry, roads and other infrastructure) should not only evaluate the potential for use provided by the environment but also the

The long-term development of avalanche risk in settlements considering the temporal variability of damage potential

Recent studies on the avalanche risk in alpine settlements suggested a strong dependency of the development of risk on variations in damage potential. Based on these findings, analyses on probable

Landslide hazard zonation: A review of principles and practice

Of all natural hazards, slope failures are the most amenable to measures directed towards avoidance, prevention or correction. The causes inherent in the terrain are relatively well understood, hence

Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability

Risiken durch Naturgefahren in Deutschland : Abschlussbericht des BMBF-Verbundprojektes Deutsches Forschungsnetz Naturkatastrophen (DFNK)

The purpose of sub-project A3 was to provide scenarios of precipitation with a plausible representation of extreme events, which are consistent with a given set of global climate evolutions. Among

Living with Risk

Living with risk can lead to anticipatory feelings such as anxiety or hopefulness. Such feelings can affect the choice between lotteries that will be played out in the future—choice may be motivated
