These edited proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop detail the ongoing search for better ways of protecting human life, land, property and the environment by improved flood management. Such flood management is difficult enough in river basins controlled by a single authority, and becomes even more challenging when dealing with transboundary floods, which may originate in one country or jurisdiction and propagate downstream to another country, or jurisdiction.
Broad coverage of flood management issues including collection of flood data, flood forecasting, modelling, non-structural and structural flood protection measures, and public education
Practically oriented papers reflecting extensive experience of authors
Applications of modern technology, including remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems, in flood management
