Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines the physical dimensions of 2 colocated distinct flood hazards, terminal lake flooding and wetland flooding, in the Stump Lake closed subbasin within the prairie landscape in north-central North Dakota. The AA. review the physical basis of each flood type. This analysis will establish the magnitude of wetland flooding in comparison to terminal lake flooding in the study area. Stump Lake flooding is spatially restricted and has had limited impact upon the surrounding lakeshore environment. Rural wetland flooding is pervasive and has a deleterious effect upon the region's agricultural economic base
