Book Description :

This preparedness guide by the Nat. Weather Service (NWS) explains flood-related hazards and suggests lifesaving actions you can take. With this info. you can recognize a flood potential, develop a plan, and be ready when threatening weather approaches. Your safety is up to you! In the long term, floods kill more people in the U.S. than other types of severe weather. Floods can roll boulders the size of cars, tear out trees, destroy buildings and bridges, and pose a significant threat to human lives. Once a river reaches flood stage, the flood severity categories used by the NWS include minor flooding, moderate flooding, and major flooding. Each category has a definition based on property damage and public threat. Color illustrations.

Book Description :

Flash floods typically develop in a period a few hours or less and can arise from heavy rainfall and other causes, such as dam or flood defence breaches, and ice jam breaks. The rapid development, often associated with a high debris content, can present a considerable risk to people and property. This book describes recent developments in techniques for monitoring and forecasting the development of flash floods, and providing flood warnings. Topics which are discussed include rainfall and river monitoring, nowcasting, Numerical Weather Prediction, rainfall-runoff modelling, and approaches to the dissemination of flood warnings and provision of an emergency response. The book is potentially useful on civil engineering, water resources, meteorology and hydrology courses (and for post graduate studies) but is primarily intended as a review of the topic for a wider audience.

Book Description :

The models used to predict the depth of scour that might occur in a river when a bridge is constructed across it were based on laboratory data. Within the decade of the 1980s, the Federal Highway Administration encouraged the states to collect field data on flooding and its effect on bridges. These data were used to verify the models for those conditions and geographic areas for which the data were applicable. High water during floods is the test of such models. Thus, after the severe flood in November 1985, as much information as possible was collected and compiled about the flood waters, the geology of the site, the configuration of the river and its flood plain, the bridge, and the damage done by the flood at four sites. Some of the data were used to calculate hydraulic parameters, and depths of scour; and the sediments collected were processed to determine their engineering properties. At least a year after the calculations were made, the Federal Highway Administration issued a technical advisory (1) on scour at bridges which contained recommendations that would have changed the results had they been available when those calculations were made. It was recognized that the information collected in Virginia was limited in scope relative to the tremendous variability in characteristics and conditions that exist for rivers throughout the United States. Thus, in order to cooperate in a regional to national effort, this information was transmitted to the Hydraulics Section of the Federal Highway Administration where it was used to verify and modify the predictive models.

Book Description :

There is by now a large literature on the economic aspects of flood control and flood relief policies. The contribution of this paper lies in its careful scrutiny of one single critical aspect of the economics of floods, the choice of land use by a single land owner. We analyze that choice using the methods of dynamic programming, and in particular, we show how that choice is dependent on the probability of floods for his piece of land. The theory we have developed here has been developed in the context of floods. In fact, this work grew out of an empirical study of flood plain damages, when we found that the underlying theory was not yet developed.! In fact, we feel that the theory is of much more general interest. It is a theory of optimal investment choice under uncertainty when that uncertainty is a result of destruction or failure of the investment at a random date. This is the case in flood plains, but it is also the appropriate basic theory for understanding investment decisions in the face of earthquakes, fires, war damage, avalanches, and other kinds of disasters. These are only the more dramatic examples of situations where replacement is required at an uncertain date.
