About this Research Topic
How to build the flood resilience for our societies in a changing climate has become one of the most challenging questions to be addressed. Addressing this question requires a paradigm shift from reactive crisis management to proactive flooding risk assessment and mitigation.
Therefore, this Research Topic aims to capture the recent advances toward flood resilience in a changing climate. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Climate change modeling, downscaling, and scenarios
• Climate change and extreme precipitation
• Flood modeling and mapping
• Flood early warning systems and emergency management
• Flood risk assessment and management
• Socio-economic impacts and resilience of flooding
• Flood hazard mitigation and adaptation
We welcome submissions in different formats, including Original Research Articles, Review Articles, Perspectives, Opinions, Commentary, and Data Reports.
Keywords: flood, climate change, warning systems, precipitation, resilience, hazard mitigation, economic loss, flood modeling, crisis management
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
