Ancient Floods, Modern Hazards: Principles and Applications of Paleoflood Hydrology

P. K. House, R. H. Webb, V. R. Baker, and D. R. Levish (Eds.)

Ancient Floods, Modern Hazards: Principles and Applications of Paleoflood Hydrology is a milestone publication with contributions to basic and applied science. Studies in hydrology, climatology, hydraulics, geochronology, geomorphology, and stratigraphy highlight recent advances in tools, techniques, and methods for interpreting the physical evidence of large floods. The papers in this volume illustrate a range of important topics, including: •how paleoflood hydrology provides a basis for the estimation of flood magnitude and frequency for flood hazard analysis•the relationship between climate variability and flood frequency•advances in the hydraulic modeling of floods•new applications of remote sensing technology•superior understanding of the sedimentology, stratigraphy, and chronology of flood deposits•insight into geographic and geologic controls on floods A unique volume, this work offers a wealth of information to anyone involved in the study of flood science.
