Streamflow in semi-arid lands commonly occurs in the form of flash floods in dry-bed ephemeral streams. The goal of this research was to couple hydrological and 2D hydraulic model treatments of channel transmission losses, in order to show the impact of not taking transmission losses on flood hazard mapping into consideration. For hydraulic modeling the… CONTINUE READING
