Blurb/Shorttext:
Accurate spatial and temporal information of floods are highly important for economic loss estimation and to undertake various measures for flood disaster mitigation. A distributed hydrologic model is an effective tool to generate such information at high spatio-temporal resolutions. Flood loss estimation is required to facilitate the assessment of benefits of flood protection. An integrated model for flood simulation and loss estimation can play an important role in flood risk analysis. Very little academic literature exists on flood loss modeling. This book presents the development and application of an integrated and distributed model for inundation simulation and damage estimation for real-world application at river basin scale. The model can be of help to decisions-makers many ways in weighing various options for river basin planning and flood management. It can help insurance companies in devising adequate insurance policies for river basins that are under potential threats from major floods. The model can be viewed as a very useful tool in decision making process for undertaking various measures for flood disaster management.
