L5. Advances in floodplain inundation modelling: from local to regional scales

In recent years, there have been significant advances made in flood inundation modelling to cater for various needs such as inundation forecasting, flood risk management, environmental wetland management from local to basin to regional scales. These advances have been achieved through improving modelling structures and algorithms, adopting to parallel computing, integrating remote sensing with inundation modelling, etc. With these advances, it has now become possible to model large scale floodplains of several thousands of km2 for multiple flood events with relatively high computational efficiency. Another aspect of advances in floodplain modelling is the quantitative estimates of uncertainty associated with floodplain inundation simulation and prediction. These advances have led to practical applications of rapid real-time inundation modelling and forecasting.

This session invites papers dealing with various aspects of advances in floodplain inundation modelling such as:
