About this book

This book deals with many aspects of flood risk management in a comprehensive way. As risks depend on hazard and vulnerabilities, not only are geophysical tools for flood forecasting and planning presented, but also socio-economic problems of flood management. Hydrological models are described in their applications for operational flood forecasts whilst new hydrological tools for flood risk assessments for dams and reservoirs are also presented.
