Bočkarjova, M. \ Rietveld, P. \ Verhoef, E.T. \ 2008
So far no extensive literature exists on the valuation of extreme natural hazards pertaining low frequency and high potential impact. In this paper, we attain to fill this gap with the study of flood risk in the Netherlands by means of a stated prefe ...
Uncertainty in flood risk assessments: what are its major sources and implications? \ Comprehensive flood risk management : research for policy and practice [Congresverslag]
Moel, H. de \ Botzen, W.J.W. \ Aerts, J.C.J.H. \ 2013
As with any calculation that uses models with various data sources and relationships, flood risk assessments are surrounded by considerable uncertainty. Investigating uncertainty and its propagation in flood risk assessments is complicated because of ...

Bubeck, P. \ Kreibich, H. \ Penning-Rowsell, E.C. \ Botzen, W.J.W. \ Moel, H. de \ Klijn, F. \ 2013
Flood Risk Management (FRM) in Europe and worldwide is not static but constantly in flux. Generally, there has been a trend towards more integrated FRM in many countries. However, the initial situation in the various countries is very different. The ...
Investigating the announcement effects in flood risk management : using the designation of emergency inundation areas as a quasi-experiment \ Proceedings of the 53rd Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International, November 16th - 18th 2006 [Congresverslag]
Daniel, V.E. \ Florax, R.J.G.M. \ Rietveld, P. \ 2006
The use of emergency inundation areas is one of the tools dedicated to flood risk management. In the Netherlands, zones at risk along rivers are protected by dike rings. The probability of a dike break is set as small as possible and is guaranteed by ...
Simulating flood-peak probability in the Rhine basin and the effect of climate change \ Proceedings conference FloodRisk, Oxford, 30 September-2 October 2008 [Congresverslag]
Linde, A.H. te \ Aerts, J.C.J.H. \ 2008
Impacts of land use change, flood defence measures and climate change on peak discharges are studied at different scales in the Rhine basin. Few studies, though, have studied the combined effect of these variables in scenarios and how these scenarios ...
Unbreachable embankments? In pursuit of the most effective stretches for reducing fatality risk \ Comprehensive flood risk management : research for policy and practice [Congresverslag]
Bruijn, K.M. de \ Klijn, F. \ Knoeff, J.G. \ 2013
Experiences with recent and past floods have lead to recurrent calls to reinforce flood defences in such a way as to always prevent their breaching. When a breach forms, the inflow is very fast and furious, leaving no time for evacuation and causing ...
Advances in coastal disasters risk management: lessons of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami. \ Proceedings of the 34th International Conference on Coastal Engineering 2012, Santander [Congresverslag]
Jonkman, S.N. \ Yasuda, T. \ Tsimopoulou, V. \ Kawai, H. \ Kato, F. \ 2012
The earthquake and tsunami of March 2011 led to death and destruction in coastal areas in Japan. A seminar was held in June 2012 for Japanese and Dutch coastal researchers to discuss lessons for the management of the risks in coastal areas associated ...
Umbrella program IRMA - SPONGE : background, scope and methodology : proceedings of the second IRMA-SPONGE working conference on flood risk assessment, flood reduction measures and sustainable flood risk management, Maastricht, The Netherlands 29-30 June 2000 [Congresverslag]

Morphological development of man-made side channels in the flood plains of the river Rhine \ Proceedings international workshop on development and management of floodplains and wetlands, Beijing, September 2000. [Congresverslag]
Schropp, M.H.I. \ Jans, L.H. \ 2000
The flood plain area of the River Rhine in the Netherlands has been reduced considerably over the past centuries. In addition the river normalisations have had a severe effect on the biodiversity of the system. In order to cope with higher flood disc ...
Enhancing flood risk system robustness in practice \ Comprehensive flood risk management : research for policy and practice [Congresverslag]
Mens, M.J.P. \ Klijn, F. \ Schielen, R.M.J. \ 2013
We consider robust (fluvial) flood risk systems to have the ability to remain functioning under a range of river discharges. To understand system robustness, it is thus useful to analyze how the flood impact varies over a range of possible events. We ...
