a r t i c l e i n f o There is growing interest in floodplain conservation as a flood damage reduction strategy, particularly given the co-benefits that protected lands provide. We evaluate one such investment—a greenway along the Meramec River in St. Louis County, Missouri. We estimate the opportunity costs, the avoided flood damages, and the capitalization of proximity to protected lands into nearby home prices. To estimate avoided flood damages, we undertake a parcel-level analysis using the…

Valuing natural habitats for enhancing coastal resilience: Wetlands reduce property damage from storm surge and sea level rise
Results indicate that this salt marshes can reduce up to 14% of both the flood depth and property damage during relatively low intensity storm events, demonstrating the efficacy of natural flood protection for recurrent storm events.
Flash flooding prediction in regions of northern Vietnam using the KINEROS2 model
Flash flooding (FF) in Vietnam has become an important issue due to increasing loss of property and life. This paper investigates FF prediction using the Kinematic Run-off and Erosion model to
