This one-day course introduces the different types of methods and models, ranging from simple empirical methods to sophisticated agent-based models where the behaviour of each individual and their interaction with the flood hazard is explicitly represented.

Summary

In the years between 1980 and 2009, it has been estimated that there were approximately 540,000 deaths, 362,000 injuries and 2.8 billion people affected by floods. Despite this global impact there has been little attention paid to methods to estimate the possible scales of the loss of life and the likely evacuation times for flood events in order to improve emergency planning.

This course introduces the different types of methods and models that are available, ranging from simple empirical methods to sophisticated agent-based models where the behaviour of each individual and their interaction with the flood hazard is explicitly represented.
