Description

Urban expansion and associated land-use changes increase both flood hazards and exposure. This book provides a conceptual and methodological framework for the analysis of urban flood risk in dynamic and complex settings, and proposes a comprehensive, system-oriented, integrated approach for its assessment. The risk assessment is carried out using case-specific indicators on the sub-city scale in two municipalities of Santiago de Chile. Relevant information is derived from various geodata sources, and together with explorative scenarios, is used to estimate future risk development. All data about hazard, elements at risk, and their vulnerability are compiled to a GIS-based risk map to join the risk-relevant components, to show their interrelations, and to provide a tool for monitoring and evaluating their changes over time. Finally, previous deficits in flood risk prevention and mitigation are outlined and recommendations on risk reduction are made.

Auteur

Annemarie Müller studierte Geographie an der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena und an der Dalhousie University in Halifax, Kanada. Nach Ihrer Abschlussarbeit über die Bewertung sozialer Verwundbarkeit die sie am International Institute for Earth Observation and Geo-Information in Enschede, den Niederlanden, schrieb begann Sie Ihre Doktorarbeit über urbane Hochwasserrisikobewertung am Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung. Dort ist Sie weiterhin als Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin tätig.

Annemarie Müller studied geography at the University of Jena, Germany and Dalhousie University of Halifax, Canada. After finishing her MSc thesis on vulnerability assessment at the ITC Enschede, the Netherlands, she started working on her PhD on urban flood risk assessment at the Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung (UFZ) Leipzig, Germany, where she has been working as a scientific collaborator since.



Résumé
quot;The study by A. Müller is amply furnished with relevant materials, underlining the detailed and clearly structured text and its two appendices. 75 figures and more than 40 tables support the well-written text and must be seen as indispensable parts of the scientific argumentation. This holds especially true for the almost 40 coloured maps, diagrams and satellite images, mostly concentrating on the two regional case studies. A comprehensive bibliography provides additional food for thought - and for further reading. Altogether: A valuable example of German megacity research!" Eckart Ehlers Erdkunde 66, 2012/4
