The dissertation explores the use of emergency measures, particularly the BresDefender, to prevent or delay levee failure and mitigate the impacts of floods, focusing on the Netherlands' flood protection systems. Levees are vital for protecting low-lying areas, but there's always a risk of failure, leading to significant societal and material...

Vernacular heritage sites encompass customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions, and values that are innate to a particular place and time. Climate knowledge of the particular place and time is embedded in vernacular settlements and lifestyles along with other environmental, cultural, and societal determinants of the place. Rebuilt...

The past decades have witnessed frequent flood peak discharges increase in the Lower Yellow River (LYR). Yet no consensus for its mechanism has been achieved. Here 21 events of the peak discharge increase (PDI) in the period of 1973–2012 are analysed. It is shown that the mean increment of peak discharge increases from 810 m<sup>3</sup>/s to...

Despite the increasing number of studies on the river-tide interactions in estuaries, less attention has been paid to the role of seasonal morphological changes on tidal regime. This study analyzes the seasonal interplay of river and tide in the Qiantang Estuary, China, particularly focusing on the influences of the active morphological...

The district of Fındıklı in the Northeast city of Rize in Turkey is environmentally and culturally rich with its rural, built, and natural heritage. The city of Rize has been experiencing more frequent and severe rainfall, flooding, and landslides in the last decade. River flooding along the coast and in the center of the city is destroying...

The number of fatalities due to a potential flood event is traditionally determined utilizing 'mortality functions’. Data of recent large-scale flooding in the Netherlands are not available since the Netherlands was successful in flood prevention. Therefore, only data from the last coastal flood event in 1953 with 1795 direct fatalities are...

The various determinants of vernacular architecture embrace ethnic cultural diversity, morals, climate, cultural and geographical setting, topography, political attitude, religion and language spoken which shaped the rural built heritage in Fındıklı in the Black Sea region. Yet, climate change hazards such as river flooding, more frequent...

When river and coastal floods coincide, their impacts are often worse than when they occur in isolation; such floods are examples of ‘compound events’. To better understand the impacts of these compound events, we require an improved understanding of the dependence between coastal and river flooding on a global scale. Therefore, in this letter,...

The modelling frameworks, which include greenhouse gas emission scenarios, climate models, downscaling methods and hydrological models, are generally used to assess climate change impacts on river floods. In this research, the uncertainty associated with each component of the modelling framework is analysed with particular reference to climate...

The Thua Thien-Hue province is located in the centre of Vietnam. It is characterized by the short distance between the mountains in the west and the coast of the South China Sea in the east. Two large rivers flow through the province, fed by multiple smaller rivers from the mountains. The Bo River flows through the northern part of the province...

Occasional flows of the river Nyabage cause floods in the river valley, flooding bridges and buildings, amongst others a small hospital of MsF. The flow is a mixture of water and debris and causes severe damage. The report describes the phenomena and the damage in the area. Some proposals for improvements are given

The Climate Dike is a logical addition to the current practice of raising and reinforcing dikes. A Climate Dike is defined here as „a collective term for design components that result in flood defences so robust that they are virtually impossible to breach, and thus offer lasting protection, even in the face of ongoing climate change.. The...

The influence of river flood on the coastal inlet morphology is investigated with the aid of process based state-of-the-art numerical models. Hydrodynamics of tidal inlets during a severe flood situation and behavior of the inlets are described and explained.

Master project report. In the year 2004 there was a flooding in an area between Da'an River and Dajia River in Taichung County, Taiwan. The flooding was caused by outlets which were clogged up, thus lacking the capacity to discharge the amount of rainwater that the typhoon caused into the sea. A survey conducted by the project group, showed that...

This report is part 2 of the economic analysis of the project ‘Space for the Rivers’, which aims at improving the safety against flooding along the river Rhine. It is a Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) of proposed measures and packages. A method has been developed for evaluating measures and packages with more than one effect at the same time....

From the very earliest times, man has sought to reduce the damaging impact of floods. However, despite a growing understanding of flood hydrology, plus the application of an increasingly complex technology and the injection of progressively larger capital sums, flood losses continue to rise. The concentration was principally placed on the...

For the city of Kampen along the IJssel river a movable flood defence has been designed. This is a floating barrier, which floats up when the water reaches a critical level. This solution was favored because of the limited space and the historical waterfront view.

The second Chapter refers to the institutional and legislative framework, that is, the laws in force at the different levels, from local to global, in each partner’s country and concludes with considerations on optimal levels of coordination. Chapter III begins with the methodology recommended for the study of small-medium basins, based upon the...
