This session is a merge session and jointly lead by the group of NH1.1 and NH1.2.
NH1.1: Innovative Techniques for Flood Forecasting, Assessment and Flood Risk Management
This session invites presentations on research based on high-resolution aerial, satellite and ML techniques for flood monitoring and modeling, including mapping of inundation extent, flow depths, velocity fields, flood-induced morphodynamics, and debris transport. It also invites the presentation of innovative modelling techniques of flood hydrodynamics, flood hazard, damage and risk assessment, as well as flood relief prioritization, dam and dike (levees) break floods, and flood mitigation strategies. Studies dealing with the modelling uncertainties and modern techniques for model calibration and validation are particularly welcome. Furthermore, real-time flood inundation mapping is a critical aspect for the evacuation of people from low-lying areas and to reduce casualties. Acquisition of real-time data gained through UAV-based flood inundation mapping, ML and modelling techniques, as well as assessment of uncertainties in real-time aerial surveying are welcome in this session. We also encourage contributions in integrative solutions at local, regional or global perspectives. Invited Speaker: Prof.Paul Bates (https://research-information.bris.ac.uk/en/persons/paul-d-bates)
NH1.2: Advances in modeling, failure assessment and monitoring of levees and other flood defences
The present session aims to provide a platform for the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge among flood risk and other flood hazard related scientific communities interested in the modeling, assessment and monitoring of soil made flood defences, to share their experiences and advances in the field. Hence the session aims to present contributions regarding: 1) Numerical and experimental advances on failure mechanism understanding (e.g. Overtopping, piping erosion, Slope stability, etc) 2) Probabilistic assessment of flood defence design and reliability assessment. 3) Monitoring techniques of flood defences based on remote and direct instrumentation. 4) Alternative flood defence studies for evaluation of effect and performance of controlled failure, retention basins and fast infiltration surfaces on inundation models. 5) Artificial intelligence and data driven techniques for modeling, assessment and monitoring of soil flood defences.
