Program goals

Develop, test and disseminate appropriate methods and procedures for evaluating flood risk reflecting knowledge uncertainties including climate variability and climate change

Brief Description

As climate science and hydrology have advanced, it has become increasingly apparent that in some locations, flood risk has varied over time due to climate factors, while anticipating climate change brings additional concerns. Flood frequency analysis methods need to evolve to appropriately reflect these and other factors, including development in river basins and land use change, to provide appropriate information pertaining to the risk of flooding and it consequences.
