Spatio-temporal rainfall estimation and nowcasting for flash flood forecasting.
Floods cannot be prevented, but their devastating effects can be minimized if advance warning of the event is available. The South African Disaster Management Act (Act 57 of 2002) advocates a paradigm shift from the current ...
Modelling flood inundation in the Mlazi river under uncertainty.
The research project described in this dissertation studies the modelling techniques employed for the Mlazi River in the context of flood analysis and flood forecasting in order to model flood inundation. These techniques ...
A linear catchment model for real time flood forecasting.
A linear reservoir cell model is presented which is proposed as a good candidate for real time flood forecasting applications. The model is designed to be computationally efficient since it should be able to run on ...
Flood estimation in developing countries with case studies in Ethiopia.
Extreme flood events have become more destructive in some parts of Ethiopia. Thus, accurate estimates of flood frequencies are vital for effective flood risk management. Yet, estimation of the peak flood is exceptionally ...
