    • How about the dikes? Managed realignment in progress at the Hedwige-Prosperpolder 

      Hoven, Kim van den; Kroeze, Carolien; Loon-Steensma, Jantsje M. van (2021)
      Managed realignment is the landward relocation of a primary flood defence line. Because of this relocation, former land re-inundates, intertidal habitats can restore and new foreshores can develop adjacent to relocated ...
    • How does culture affect individual adaptation to climate-driven floods? 

      Noll, Brayton; Filatova, Tatiana; Need, Ariana (2021)

      Flood defences play a central role in the quantification of flood risk. JBA Risk Management produces undefended hazard maps that are supplemented with defence information to provide risk practitioners with the most flexible ...
    • Impact of climate change on Hungarian Water Management Strategy 

      Balatonyi, László (2021)
      One of the pillars of the Hungarian Water Strategy is preparing for the expected effects of climate change. Changes in the spatial and temporal distribution of water is the major challenge for Hungarian Water Management ...
    • Improved Prediction of Atmospheric Rivers That Drive Flood Damages in the Western United States 

      Talbot, Cary A.; Corringham, Tom; Ralph, F. Martin; Gershunov, Alexander; Cayan, Daniel R. (2021)
      Atmospheric rivers (ARs) are extratropical storms that produce extreme precipitation on the west coasts of the world's major landmasses and have been shown to be an important source of variations in precipitation and ...
    • Improving Situational Awareness for Floods: Monitoring Using Satellite Data in the Boreal Region 

      Cohen, Juval; Heinilä, Kirsikka; Huokuna, Mikko; Metsämäki, Sari; Heilimo, Jyri; Sane, Mikko (2021)
      Space-borne remote sensing techniques enable a near real-time mapping of floods cost-efficiently. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and optical sensors are the most suitable for flood detection, however, SAR has become more ...
    • Improving urban flood estimation and flood risk assessment using landscape metrics  

      Miller, James; Vesuviano, Gianni; Stewart, Elizabeth (2021)
      Urbanization creates impervious coverage and increases peak flows during storm events. Flood estimation methods in the United Kingdom characterize these impacts using a weighted measure of catchment urban land cover, but ...
    • Industry Research into Dam and Levee Breach Erosion Through Coarser Grained Materials 

      Morris, Mark; Courivaud, Jean-Robert; Moran, Rafael; Toledo, Miguel Á.; Picault, Christophe (2021)
      Predicting breach erosion processes is essential for the effective risk management of both dams and levees. In recent years, a variety of research efforts have improved our knowledge of erosion processes, and in particular ...
    • Influence of water depth on wave overtopping 

      Van Steeg, Paul; De Ridder, Menno; Capel, Alex; Bottema, Marcel (2021)
      The wave overtopping discharge during extreme storm conditions largely determines the required crest height in dike reinforcement projects. In case of future sea level rise, crest heights should be increased significantly, ...
    • Interdisciplinary approach to flood risk and the Consequence of Flooding 

      Suarez, Eva L.; Meeroff, Daniel E. (2021)
      This paper describes an alternate approach to prioritizing pluvial flood risk intervention strategies, and quantifying Consequence of Flooding (CoF) by applying the methodology of Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA). ...
    • Internal Erosion Breach Model Review and Validation 

      Morris, Mark; Courivaud, Jean-Robert (2021)
      Predicting breach erosion processes is essential for the effective risk management of both dams and levees. Following the success of an earlier initiative to assess the performance of breach models for predicting overflow ...
    • International Guidelines on Natural and Nature-Based Features 

      Bridges, Todd; Simm, Jonathan; King, Jeffrey (2021)
      Natural and Nature-Based Features (NNBF) have been used for decades to support a variety of objectives in coastal and fluvial systems. Coastal and fluvial restoration projects have been used in Europe, the United States ...
