Changes in flood risk in europe

Kundzewicz, z.w.

9780415621892 - Changes in flood risk in europe

Artikelomschrijving

Floods are the most prevalent natural hazard in Europe. Has flood risk increased in the continent? How, where, and why? Are climate change impacts apparent? How do socio-economic trends and associated land-use and land-cover change impact flood risk? This book considers national and regional perspectives on flood risk change, detection and attribution of change, and the re-insurers point of view. * Offers an overview of flood risk in Europe, past, present, and future * Includes national/regional chapters covering central, western, southern, and northern Europe, the Alpine region, and the Iberian Peninsula * Rectifies commonplace judgements: e.g. the climate is warming so floods should be becoming more frequent and intense, but observations do not always confirm this expectation
