  1. 1. Global satellite data as proxies for urbanization in flood prone areas

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Florian van Schaik; [2018]
    Nyckelord :flood exposure; global satellite data; urbanization; remote sensing; sustainable development;

    Sammanfattning : Delta regions are typically characterized by their high population density, low elevation, and risk of flooding. Long term planning and preparation is needed to mitigate the adverse effects of floods. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Resilience of urban systems in the face of natural hazards : To what extent do humanitarian organisations contribute to flood preparedness in Jakarta?

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Teologiska institutionen

    Författare :Sarah Stingl; [2018]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Today, the humanitarian sector is faced with the interplay of several challenges: The world is increasingly becoming urbanized and cities are rapidly expanding into megacities and metacities. At the same time it is confronted with a heightened disaster risk that affects the urban realm in particular. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Förorenade områdens sårbarhet för klimatrelaterade naturolyckor

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Nyckelord :Contaminated sites; risk assessment; vulnerability; natural hazards; index; climate change.; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Throughout history industries have been located adjacent to water courses to use water in the process, for transport and release of wastewater. This is also the case along the Arboga river. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Integrated hydrodynamic and socio-economic damage modelling for assessment of flood risk in large-scale basin : The case study of Lower Chao Phraya River Basin in Thailand

    Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Författare :Phat Pumchawsaun; [2018]

    Sammanfattning : Thailand has been often affected by severe flood events over the past century. The 2011’s Thailand Flood Catastrophe was the costliest in country’s history, and it was ranked to be the second most damaging natural hazard in the world in terms of economic losses. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Flood vulnerability analysis for inland medium-sized cities: Guang’an as an example

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Geoinformatik

    Författare :Ting Liang; [2017]
    Nyckelord :GIS; socio-ecological system; flood vulnerability;
