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 Modelling by P. P. Mujumdar and D. Nagesh Kumar and Floods in a Changing Climate: Risk Management by Slodoban Simonović.Read more
- 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
