Geomorphological understanding of floods

Geomorphology and natural hazards

Auteurs :
BAKER, V.R.

Description :
In contrast to the conceptual, theoretical treatment of floods as classes or generalizations, geomorphologists study particular floods revealed as a natural experience that is recorded in the sediments, landforms and erosional scars of past floods. The strength of this approach is in its affinity to the commonsense perceptional basis that underpins human action. Geomorphological floods studies, including recent advances in paleoflood hydrology, are needed as a complement to conventional hydrological approaches.
