About this book

Flood inundation models enable us to make hazard predictions for floodplains, mitigating increasing flood fatalities and losses. Floods in a Changing Climate: Inundation Modelling 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.
