A flood is an overflow of water that submerges land that is usually dry. In the sense of "flowing water", the word may also be applied to the inflow of the are an area of study of the discipline hydrology and are of significant concern in agriculture, civil engineering and public health.. Flooding may occur as an overflow of water from water bodies, such as a river, lake, .

The climate change scenarios of KNMI were therefore used to calculate mean monthly discharges of the Rhine and Meuse Rivers (Van Deursen ).Thus also four scenarios for river discharge regime were obtained (Fig. 1) which reveal that the Cited by:

A flood plain is an area around a stream, river, or body of water where water will travel during a flood event. Collecting information about ground elevation, land use, rain and snow melt, culverts and bridges, and stream profiles allows us to model what a major flood event might look like and map where the flood plain exists.

Created Date: 1/29/ AM. This volume describes models that PAWN developed and used to estimate the change in safety, as measured by the probability of flooding, which would result from these tactics.

Two models, the IJsselmeer Filling Model and the Dike Safety Model, are described and the reliability of the results obtained by using these models are : T.

The poster on lakes shows the physical model. The model input consists of time series of processes that are relevant for the lake water dynamics, such as discharges of the IJssel river and the regional contributaries, wind direction, wind velocity and sea level.

The model com- putes. Case Area System Description For simplicity, we will refer in the text to the whole system of interconnected lakes as Lake IJssel Region.

The three lakes have an open water surface of around km2, km2 and 62 km2 respectively and can be considered as being shallow-water lakes. The main river entering Lake IJssel, is IJssel River Author: Jan Talsma, Wim Werkman, Arnejan van Loenen.

This model (see) is applied in the probabilistic model Hydra-VIJ to describe the correlation between the discharge of the river IJssel and the spatially averaged water level of the IJssel lake into which the river discharges.

Furthermore, it is used in the probabilistic model Hydra-B to describe the correlation between sea water level and wind by: 9.
