Flood Risk Mapping Using Economic Environmental and Social Dimensions



Flood risk mapping using economic, environmental and sociadimensions
Yeğin, Murat; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Flood is one of the most destructive natural hazards in Turkey. It is unavoidable but its impacts can be minimized by taking necessary precautions. Flood risk mapping is a developing concept and it is used to determine economically, environmentally and socially risky areas. European Council stipulated the member countries to prepare flood hazard maps showing extents of low, medium and high probability flood events. These maps should also be prepared for Turkey during the European Union harmonization process...
Flood risk management in Ghana: A case study in Accra
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa; Jayaweera, , MPC Herath (2015-5-4)
Several natural disasters have occurred from the days of biblical Noah until now. These natural disasters have taken various forms like; floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruption tsunamis, tornadoes, landslides, hurricane, and among others. Within the past decades, flooding has become a global pandemic which hampers economic and social development. This global phenomenon has affected 4 million people, loss of lives and economic damages of approximately US$ 780,500,000 in Ghana. It is therefore necessary to asc...
Flood Interaction with River Crossings: A Case Study
Yanmaz, Ali Melih (null, Springer, 1994-01-01)
Floods are natural hazards whose effects can deeply affect the economic and environmental equilibria of a region. Quality of life of people living in areas close to rivers depends on both the risk that a flood would occur and the reliability of flood forecast, warning and control systems. Tools for forecasting and mitigating floods have been developed through research in the recent past. Two innovations currently influence flood hazard mitigation, after many decades of lack of significant progress: they are...
Flood forecasting and analysis within the Ulus Basin, Turkey, using geographic information systems
Usul, Nurunnisa; Turan, Burak (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-10-01)
Floods have been the most severe natural disasters in the West Black Sea Region of Turkey for many years; therefore Ulus Basin is selected as a study area for a thorough hydrologic flood analysis. The lack of embankments around the Ulus River and careless changes to the riverbed made by villagers, resulted in major flood events in the basin, causing significant damage in the area. In this study, the hydrodynamic characteristics of the basin and the riverbed are determined by calibrating the hydraulic module...

This study aims to execute a flood management system and examine the appropriate structural measures to protect Dikmen town against the impacts of flooding. At first, hydrologic models using HEC-HMS tools are developed to simulate the rainfall-runoff processes in each of the three main ungauged sub-basins on the upstream side of the town. Next, the discharge hydrographs of the 5th December 2018 flood event are defined in the 2D HEC-RAS model, and the flood inundation maps of the study area are generated. T...
