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.

Biography

Giuliano Di Baldassarre is a Senior Lecturer at the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in Delft, The Netherlands, and also works as the coordinator of the EC FP7 KULTURisk project, which aims at prevention of water-related disasters through evaluation of different risk prevention measures. His teaching and research interests include: floodplain processes and inundation modelling, hydroinformatics and remote sensing data, statistical hydrology and flood management under uncertainty. Dr Di Baldassarre serves as an editor of Hydrology and Earth System Sciences and guest editor of Physics and Chemistry of the Earth and Hydrological Processes and is also the author of more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and more than 60 other publications including invited book chapters and conference proceedings. His scientific papers have received more than 200 citations and his achievements have been recognized by a number of prizes, including the Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the European Geosciences Union.
