Flood papers alert 2023

Adina Moraru (WP2) researches flood risk in mountain rivers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Flooding has taken a toll in European countries during summer 2023, highlighting the relevance of expanding what we know about floods and how we manage rivers. Adina has published two journal papers on this topic earlier this month:

Paper 1: what makes some rivers more vulnerable to flooding than others?

Paper 2: how can we obtain quicker flood data to monitor and manage rivers?
