Call for Papers: Flood Catastrophes in a Changing Environment   

Flooding is one of the natural disasters that causes severe losses and damage across the world. Recent studies indicate that the frequency of flooding might increase under future climate conditions. In addition, human activities such as rapid urbanization and construction of hydraulic engineering have significantly modified drainage networks, and further promote flood risk. This is true in many large rivers and lakes, including the Yangtze River in China, and others around the world. Damage arising from flooding attracts serious attention of governments and local communities.
