Beschreibung

Floods examines the processes that control the development and flow in stream and river systems and discusses how and when these processes become hazardous. Examples of flooding and other river disasters are presented throughout this accessible book. The merits of building on versus preserving floodplains are discussed, and strategies for preserving the remaining floodplain areas are examined. Black-and-white photographs and line illustrations, an index, a glossary, sidebars, and tables enhance this rich resource.
