This volume contains papers presented at a multi-disciplinary conference on flooding. Flooding has been a hot topic in recent years, and is likely to remain so for years to come. The conference brought together leading practitioners from across the UK and Europe, to discuss one of the most pressing environmental, social and economic issues affecting Britain today. The cost of flooding has been massive, affecting both cities and rural areas.
The papers contained in this volume are wide ranging, covering both landscape related issues and the issues that are raised by a changing climate. There are papers looking at theoretical and scientific underpinning of the problem and hence the responses, as well as the papers that would interest those involved in the wider landscape management and planning.
