1.0 INTRODUCTION Floods are among the most destructive acts of natur e. World-wide, flood damages to agriculture, houses and public utilities amount to billions of dollars each year in addition to the loss of precious human and cattle lives. In majority of cases, ‘flooding’ is caused by a river over-spilling its banks. This can be due to excessive precipitation, combined wit h inadequate channel capacity. Over-spilling can also occur due to obstr uction in or aggradation of the river bed… Expand
