ABSTRACT:

Flash flooding is a hazard in many parts of the world. In south Louisiana, the terrain is particularly flat with minimal natural slope to support efficient drainage. Flash flooding is common in urban areas where runoff from rainfall quickly accumulates in coulees and cannot drain fast enough. A flash flood is a sudden and rapid rise in stream water depth resulting from heavy, localized rainfall. With a growing population, developing neighborhoods in terrain susceptible to flash floods has become more common and therefore increased the potential for damage to private property and public infrastructure.

Hydrologists are frequently required to design flood protection infrastructure to protect people and property from the impacts of flash flooding. An important hydrologic question in designing for flood protection is: How much streamflow occurs in a river in response to a given amount of rainfall? To answer this question we need to know where water goes when it rains, how long does water reside in a watershed, and what pathway does water take to the stream channel. This module addresses these questions and also looks at how much runoff is generated from surface water input comprised of rainfall.

Aqueduct Global Flood Risk Maps Data
Created: April 10, 2020, 1:02 a.m.
Authors: Romero, Elkin

ABSTRACT:

The Aqueduct Global Flood Risk Maps provide current and future river flood risk estimates in urban damage, affected GDP, and affected population by country, river basin, and state.

The datasets in these maps include current and future river flood risk estimates in urban damage, affected GDP, and affected population by country, river basin, and state.

For the current scenario, we used hydrological data from 1960 through 1999 for generating flood inundations for 9 return periods, from 2-year flood to 1000-year flood, and 2010 GDP, population, and land use data for assessing flood impacts.

For future projections, we used 5 GCMs (Global Climate Models) from CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) projecting future flood inundations under two climate scenarios, RCP4.5 (Representative Concentration Pathway) and RCP8.5, and projected socio-economic changes using SSP2 (Shared Socio-economic Pathway) and SSP3, from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Assessment Report 5.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
