    • River-dike-floodplain system Interactions and temporal dynamics for large-scale flood risk assessment 

      Farrag, Mostafa; Vorogushyn, Sergiy; Nguyen, Dung Viet; Bruijn, Karin de; Merz, Bruno (2021)
      In a complex network river, hydrodynamic interactions – changes of hydrodynamic characteristics downstream due to upstream effects – play an important role when determining flood hazard and risk. The correct representation ...
    • Sentinel data for flood disaster monitoring and assessment: case studies in Romania 

      Irimescu, Anisoara; Mihailescu, Denis; Stancalie, Gheorghe (2021)
      Floods represent one of the most significant natural disaster in Romania. The paper describes the main stages of image processing, for flood disaster monitoring and assessment in radar domain: the processing chain involves ...
    • Serious gaming as an innovative means for handling complexity in flood risk reduction 

      Heijer, Frank den; Rijke, Jeroen S.; Rial, Maria Barciela (2021)
      Flood risk reduction has always been vital to the Netherlands. The complexity that flood risk managers are facing has grown over time and is expected to do so due to developments of new knowledge, methods, innovations and ...
    • Shifting from asset damage to well-being loss within flood risk management 

      Hattum, Koen C. van; Ruig, Lars T. de; Bos, Matthijs F.M.; Kind, Jarl; Moel, Hans de (2021)
      Floods can be a cause of poverty. Poverty itself magnifies the impact of floods as poor people are more vulnerable and less resilient. Traditional flood risk assessments (FRAs) focus mostly on asset damages. Yet, poor ...
    • Sponge cities and sustainable drainage systems: sharing best practice in China and the UK 

      Stewart, Elizabeth; Lin, Yuru; Cole, Steven J.; Moore, Robert J.; Xu, Jijun; Yuan, Zhe; Pan, Deng (2021)
      Flooding from rivers, surface water and the sea is a major hazard in many cities of the world and is expected to increase in the future due to climate change. With funding from the UK-China Urban Flooding Research Impact ...
    • The failure probability of grass erosion due to wave overtopping. A case study of the Afsluitdijk, The Netherlands 

      Warmink, Jord J.; Bergeijk, Vera M. van; Kriebel, Martijn; Trul, Hizkia; Kuiper, Coen; Hulscher, Suzanne J. M. H. (2021)
      Wave overtopping is one of main failure mechanism of flood protective structures. Experiments and numerical simulations have shown that transitions are weak spots for cover erosion. Transitions in geometry and in bed ...
    • The four components to combine flood protection with other functions 

      Marijnissen, Richard J.C.; Kok, Matthijs; Kroeze, Carolien; Loon-Steensma, Jantsje M. van (2021)
      Multifunctional flood defence systems combine flood defence functions with elements in the flood protection zone that fulfil other functions like nature, housing or agriculture. The wide range in possible combinations of ...
    • The new French regulation on flood protection works: consequences on risk management 

      Tourment, Rémy; Beullac, Bruno; Deniaud, Yann; Ledoux, Patrick; Leseur, Frédéric; Mallet, Thibaut; Patouillard, Sébastien (2021)
      Following recent catastrophic floods, France issued in 2007 a first regulation on the safety of dams and levees. In 2014 a new competence has been attributed to local authorities: the management of aquatic environments and ...
    • The potential of reservoirs for both flood control and irrigation in the Sebou River (Morocco) 

      Benchbani, Ikram; Sebari, Karima; Zemzami, Mahmoud; Laabdi, Younes (2021)
      Protecting the population and property against floods is one of the Moroccan National Water Plan priorities. Indeed, based on the National Flood Protection Plan established in 2002 and updated in 2017, 1,032 vulnerable ...
    • The use of historic flood events to reduce uncertainty in future flood frequency predictions: a bootstrap method 

      Bomers, Anouk; Schielen, Ralph M. J.; Hulscher, Suzanne, J. M. H. (2021)
      Flood frequency relations are generally highly uncertain for large return times due to the relatively short data set of annual maximum discharges. This extrapolation uncertainty can be decreased by extending the data set ...
