Flooding may occur as an overflow of water from water bodies, such as a river, lake, or ocean. SER’s book series, “The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration”, is published in partnership with Island Press and has grown to include 28 full-length titles. Books cover a wide range of topics, from the scientific principles underlying restoration and the philosophical underpinnings of the discipline, to issues and strategies for restoring specific ecosystem types and field.

      Flood Problem and Management in South Asia focuses on both the hazard and the vulnerability aspects of floods. This book addresses floods in South Asia from a multidisciplinary approach.

      A flood map is the result of hydrologic and hydraulic analysis by scientific subject matter experts, that takes into account many factors when developing models for various scenarios. Such factors might include: terrain, water catchments, flood marks and information from historical floods. Water, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. This study applies an integrated methodology to assess short-term over-levee risk and long-term water shortage risk in the Da-Han Creek basin, which is the most important flood control and water storage system in northern Taiwan.
