Advances in Flood Science: Monitoring, Modelling, Management and Mitigation

This topical collection welcomes the submission of manuscripts focused on flood science, particularly those advancing scientific knowledge on flood modelling, climate change driven flood scenarios, hydrology, urban flood resilience, multi-scale rainfall forecast, flood emergency modelling as well as mapping of flood risk, hazard, vulnerability and exposure. We welcome manuscripts portraying case studies that contribute to enhance country-specific flood management practices. This topical collection brings together advances across a range of flood types, including fluvial, pluvial, groundwater and coastal. Other topics of interest are also welcome and incorporate: flood risk communication and perception, system engineering approaches to flood management, flood damage estimation, monitoring techniques and technologies and novel flood mitigation solutions. Keywords: Flooding, Monitoring, Modelling, Management, Mitigation
