Publication | Defining Flood Zone Transitions in Low‐Gradient Coastal Regions

M.V. Bilskie & S.C. Hagen (2018). “Defining Flood Zone Transitions in Low-Gradient Coastal Regions.” Geophysical Research Letters, In Press, doi: 10.1002/2018GL077524. Abstract Worldwide, coastal, and deltaic communities are susceptible to flooding from the individual and combined effects of rainfall excess and astronomic tide and storm surge inundation. Such flood events are a present (and future) cause of concern …

Coupling Hydrologic, Tide and Surge Processes to Enhance Flood Risk Assessments for the Louisiana Coastal Master Plan

Flood risk at the coastal land margin is influenced by both hydrologic and tidal processes, especially in deltaic flood plains, which leads to the realization that there exist transitional zones of flood hazard and risk. This coastal flood plain phenomena will be better understood by delineating dominant contributors to flood hazard and risk as they …
