About the Authors
  • 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 Simonović.

    • Explains recent advances in the hydraulic modeling of floods and provides guidelines for the modeling processes from data collection to model evaluation
    • Provides an overview of the many sources of uncertainty affecting hydraulic modelling of floods and provides examples and methods to estimate and communicate uncertainty
    • Presents a particular focus on cutting-edge remote sensing data, providing a one-stop resource for types of data used in floodplain modeling and also techniques for model calibration, validation and uncertainty analysis

    Giuliano Di Baldassarre, UNESCO Institute for Water Education
    Giuliano Di Baldassarre is a Senior Lecturer at the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in Delft, The Netherlands, and also works as the coordinator of the EC FP7 KULTURisk project, which aims at prevention of water-related disasters through evaluation of different risk prevention measures. His teaching and research interests include: floodplain processes and inundation modeling, hydroinformatics and remote sensing data, statistical hydrology and flood management under uncertainty. Dr Di Baldassarre serves as an editor of Hydrology and Earth System Sciences and guest editor of Physics and Chemistry of the Earth and Hydrological Processes, and is also the author of more than thirty peer-reviewed journal articles and more than sixty other publications including invited book chapters and conference proceedings. His scientific papers have received more than 200 citations and his achievements have been recognized by a number of prizes, including the Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the European Geosciences Union.
