  • Slovenian coast sea floods risk
  • Coastal environment ; Flood ; Risk ; Slovenia
  • Article gives a review of sea floods on Slovenian cost with emphasis on their formation, extent and consequences. Sea floods are occuring every year, but they vary in frequency and extent. Consequently, the damage caused by floods also varies. Sea
  • floods rise with flood tides, strong south winds and drops in air pressure. They are more frequent in autumn and winter, but they occur in spring too. The article presents a complete review of sea floods from the beginning of measurements in Koper
  • to present-day, an analysis of flooded regions and influence of climate changes on sea floods. - (IKR)
  • A note on the recent flood in Ibadan, Nigeria. On abating flood disasters, with particular reference to Ibadan

  • Construction of watershed flood disaster management information system and its application to the catastrophic flood of the Yangtze River in 1998
  • Catastrophe ; China ; Flood ; Forecast ; Geographical information system ; Hydraulic works ; Jiangxi ; Lake ; Watershed
  • Watershed flood disaster management concerns monitoring and forecasting flood, assessing the flood damage and flood control and disaster reduction decision making in the scope of the whole watershed. Remote sensing and Geographical Information
  • System are powerful tools to construct Watershed Flood Disaster Management Information System (WFDMIS). In this paper, the design and implementation of WFDMIS are discussed. An application example in Poyang Lake Basin is given.
  • A flood disaster information system and its application
  • Catastrophe ; China ; Flood ; Forecast;Prediction ; Numerical model ; Remote sensing ; Statistics
  • This paper describes the conceptual framework and design characteristics of creating a Flood Disaster Information System (FDIS), and its application experiences in China. During the 1991 flood disaster in China, the system and related techniques
  • were used on Huaihe River of central China and Taihu Lake region of east China for tracing the flood process and evaluating the loss of flood damage timely.
  • Observations of desert flood bores
  • The data show that the flood bore speed depends on the channel geometry and the dryness of the bed.
  • Strategy or disaster. Flood prevention related issues and actions in the Tisza River basin
  • Flood ; Flood control ; Fluvial deposit ; Hungary
  • Changes in land use of the lowland landscape along the Tisza River have largely been shaped by processes that took place after flood control and regulation measures of that river. As a result fluvial accumulation has either been eliminated
  • or restricted to the flood plain. At present human settlements extend to some segments of the low flood plain threatened by flood hazard. The amended Vásárhelyi Scheme focuses on raising embankments and extension of flood plain. Floods called the attention
  • to problems that have to be solved, such as the stability of levee slopes. To prevent slope slumps it would be reasonable to start studies on flood control embankments in order to reveal sections endangered by an extreme water pressure during floods. - (AM)
  • Is flooding in South Asia getting worse and more frequent?
  • Asia ; Climate ; Discharge ; Flood ; Hydrology ; Inundation ; Monsoon ; Precipitation ; River ; Southern Asia ; Tropical cyclone
  • To answer the question whether flooding in South Asia is getting worse and more frequent, all available data were considered: the annual peak discharge data for major rivers, post-1985 information on floods from the global archive of large floods
  • and palaeoflood records from nine Indian rivers. Although there is no significant trend, all types of data point to clustering of large floods. Palaeoflood records show that modern floods (post-1950) have higher flood levels than the late Holocene floods
  • . Notwithstanding the limitations of data, there is enough evidence to conclude that (1) incidences of flood-generating extreme rainfall event are rising and (2) human interventions have made the recent floods more destructive.
  • The Cork City flood of November 2009 : lessons for flood risk management and climate change adaptation at the urban scale
  • Adaptation ; Climatic change ; Cork ; Flood ; Flood control ; Hydraulic works ; Ireland ; Northern Ireland ; Risk management ; Urban area ; Vulnerability
  • Drawing on the example of Cork City and the November 2009 flood in particular, this paper evaluates contemporary policy and decision-making responses to flood hazards to determine whether they are sufficient to address current and future flood risks
  • and vulnerabilities. This framing of flood hazards is shaped by several influences including the historic evolution of flood policy and current institutional structures. The November 2009 flood highlights the limits of current policy and practice.
  • Hydrosynoptic approaches for identification of flood mechanism
  • Catastrophe ; Czech Republic ; Elbe ; Flood ; Flood control ; Water circulation ; Watershed
  • Problems related to application of hydrosynoptic approaches for flood protection in Czech Republic. Presented examples are based on data from sub-basins of the Czech Elbe River. The physical-geographic variability of Elbe-basins is a reason
  • for their varying sensibility to different types of circulation pattern, that are able to generate the flood. - (MS)
  • The Mozambique floods of February 2000 in context
  • Climatic change ; Flood ; Forecast ; Model ; Mozambique ; Statistics ; Tropical cyclone ; Twentieth Century
  • In February 2000, southern Mozambique experienced severe floods related to the passage of two tropical cyclones. An analysis is conducted of the historical context, structure and prediction of flooding during the summer season. A statistical model
  • is developed to enable the prediction of flood risk many months in advance. - (AJC)
  • Geomorphological features of Northwestern Bangladesh and some problems on flood mitigation : International Symposium on flood disaster reduction in South-East Asia
  • The northwest region of Bangladesh is divided into 4 geomorphological units which show different flood features. The region has suffered severe flood damage both in 1987 and in 1988. After these floods Bangladesh Action Plan for Flood Control
  • Long-term impacts of the 1997 floods in the Morava River Basin
  • Czech Republic ; Flood ; Impact study ; Natural hazards
  • In 1997, disastrous floods have been carried out of the Morava River and other Moravian rivers. The long-term impacts of the flood event on the landscape and population have been examined. The main causes of the flood damage are connected

  • Flood-frequency analysis for the Santa Ynez River and adjacent region, California
  • California ; Dam ; Flood ; Fluvial hydrology ; Hydraulic works ; Statistics ; Stream ; United States of America
  • A regional flood-frequency curve is presented for the Santa Ynez River and adjacent areas in southern California. This curve was developed to improve estimates of return periods for very extreme floods on the Santa Ynez River and to evaluate
  • the likelihood that Bradbury Dam, with its present spillway capacity of 4500cms, would be overstopped. The flood-frequency curve was fit using an index flood method and the assumption that floods in this region follow the log-Pearson Type III distribution.

  • Catalonia ; Flood ; Geochemistry ; Geochronology ; Isotope analysis ; Mediterranean area ; Palaeohydrology ; Sedimentary ; Spain
  • During a palaeoflood study of the Llobregat River in Catalonia, analysis of Cs 137 was carried out on slackwater flood deposits to obtain an improved flood chronology for the most recent flood sediments. The onset of measured caesium activity
  • in the sedimentary profiles permitted the deposits to be divided between those from floods that occurred before the mid-1950s and those from events after this period. Combining the information derived from the slackwater flood stratigraphy, the minimum discharge
  • estimates associated with the flood deposits, Cs 137 analysis and the instrumental peak discharge series, it was possible to identify the particular flood events responsible for the majority of the slackwater flood units.
