Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Atmosphere MDPI is launching a Special Issue titled “Flood Management and Impacts”, and we would like to invite you to contribute with your research. Papers from universities, research institutions, and public or private companies working flood management and impacts are welcome.

Floods have become one of the main risks affecting the worldwide population. Every year, millions of people are affected by events that cause heavy damages and the loss of life. Such disasters can be of a different kind, dependent on scale and cause (riverine floods, flash floods, pluvial urban floods, and compound events), but all have common factors: first, the fact that they originate from atmospheric phenomena; second, the difficulties associated with predicting them; and third, the complexity of implementing prevention and mitigation measures. Nonetheless, the socioeconomic impact caused by floods is increasing at the same time as human occupation of land increases as well, and there are changes in climatic conditions that affect the origin and consequences of flooding events.

In this context, this Special Issue invites expert contributions from around the world dealing with topics such as:

  • Flood impact analysis;
  • Flood management projects;
  • Past and current resilience examples;
  • Flood management sustainability practices;
  • Knowledge and answers in front of flood disasters;
  • Risk exposure (fatalities, injuries, damages);
  • Characterization and typologies of floods.
