Studies in hydrology, climatology, hydraulics, geochronology, geomorphology, and stratigraphy highlight recent advances in tools, techniques, and methods for interpreting the physical evidence of large floods. The papers in this volume illustrate a range of important topics, including: how paleoflood hydrology provides a basis for the estimation of flood magnitude and frequency for flood hazard analysisthe relationship between climate variability and flood frequencyadvances in the hydraulic modeling of floodsnew applications of remote sensing technologysuperior understanding of the sedimentology, stratigraphy, and chronology of flood depositsinsight into geographic and geologic controls on floodsA unique volume, this work offers a wealth of information to anyone involved in the study of flood science.
