Floods are the costliest and deadliest weather-related disaster globally. With higher population density in flood prone areas, increased urban development, and projected climate impacts, the frequency and severity of flooding in Europe is predicted to rise. While permanent flood defences have been shown to be more economically effective and...

Spatial Information is an integral part of flood management practices which include risk management & emergency response processes. Although risk & emergency management activities have their own characteristics, for example, related to the time scales, time pressure, activities & actors involved, it is still possible to identify at least one...

This paper presents an analysis of uncertainty in hydraulic modelling of floods, focusing on the inaccuracy caused by inflow errors and parameter uncertainty. In particular, the study develops a method to propagate the uncertainty induced by, firstly, application of a stage–discharge rating curve and, secondly, parameterisation of a...

This article assesses the risk to life for the Natomas Basin, a low-lying, rapidly urbanizing region in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in California. Using an empirical method, the loss of life is determined for a flood (high water), seismic, and sunny-day levee breach scenario. The analysis indicated that more than 1000 fatalities may occur...

The current river management policy in the Netherlands is to give rivers more space, mainly by main channel widening and floodplain lowering. The aim is to reduce flood water levels and to create more favourable conditions for river ecology. However, the effect on water levels gradually disappears due to sedimentation and vegetation growth on...

In a historical perspective, flood protection in the past was not given high priority - plague and periods of famine and war took precedence. Poverty and a lack of knowledge made it difficult to create safer dikes. Dike engineering did improve in Napoleonic era due to the French Central Government, but many dikes still failed. A historical...

Sediments play an important role in water resources management. In the past, hazardous contaminants from municipal and industrial wastewater effluents and from agriculture were discharged in large quantities into the water bodies and accumulated within the bottom sediments. Today, relatively unpolluted recent sediment surface layers cover older...

Introduction In May 2006 many rivers and creeks in the interior of Suriname caused flooding and a lot of inhabitants were surprised by the water. Over 22,000 people were struck in a way that their houses were (temporarily) uninhabitable. In the most places the duration of the flooding was limited to three to six days, after that the waterlevel...

In this research the effect of hydrological extremes on water quality are studied for the Rhine River, in order to assess potential water quality effects of climate change. The water quality of the Rhine was studied for the periods 1975-1977 and 1987-2005. During these periods eight hydrological extremes occured, five of which being classified...
