Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Flooding causes enormous damage and loss of life in various parts of the world. It is therefore of importance to continuously develop and improve our knowledge in the field of flood risk management. In recent years more traditional disciplines such as hydraulic modelling have evolved into the wider area of flood risk management.  Moreover, our capacity to understand and manage flood risks has improved thanks to advances in computers, remote sensing technology and better consideration of social issues.  Recent events continue to demonstrate the capacity of floods to cause substantial damage to property, loss of life, harm local economies and disrupt critical infrastructure systems. However, although these events and others share some common features they also highlight the diversity of issues and broader interactions that must be considered as part of a flood risk management strategy.

This special issue of Water is timely in its focus on flooding, but in particular as it seeks to highlight the breadth and complexity of flood risk management.  Interdisciplinary papers are welcomed that highlight new ideas, approaches and innovations in flood risk management, including topics such as:

  • different types of flooding (rivers, coastal, estuarial, urban) and threats (storms, rainfall, tsunami, dam breach);
  • case studies and comparative studies;
  • analyses of regional/global patterns and trends;
  • innovative modelling methods for flood hazards;
  • new approaches to quantifying risk and uncertainty;
  • advances in flood risk communication, policy making, economics of flood risk reduction;
  • structural and non-structural solutions for flood risk reduction;
  • relationship with other water issues such as drought, water quality; and
  • interactions with land use, food, energy and critical infrastructure.
  • effects of climate change and sea level rise on flood risks
