Influence of the urban pattern on flood risk: a comparison of 2,000 synthetic districts

Researchers at the University of Liège and Purdue University have developed a computer model to measure the influence of urbanisation on flood damage. Coordinated by Benjamin Dewals (EEU Research Unit - Faculty of Applied Sciences) the ARC FloodLand project suggests the implementation of urban planning recommendations that could limit flood depths in cities. This study was published in Science of the Total Environment.
