Flood is the foremost natural hazard around the world which affects the human life and the property. In the current era, many hydraulic and hydrologic modeling techniques are available for flood risk assessment and management. They provide a platform for the scientific community to explore the causes of floods and to build up efficient methods for flood mitigation. This session invites in depth research work carried out through flood modeling including hydrological modeling, flood hydrodynamic modeling, flood inundation mapping, flood hazard mapping, risk assessment, flood policy and flood mitigation strategy. It also welcomes the studies dealing with various uncertainties associated with different stages of modeling and to explore modern techniques for model calibration and validation. In addition, real time flood inundation mapping is the important aspect to evacuate the people from the low lying areas and reduce the death toll. The real time data information through UAV based flood inundation mapping and associated uncertainty in real time aerial surveying are welcome to this session.
