Abstract

From its origins as a geological study of flood erosion and sediments the science palaeoflood hydrology matured to become an indispensable means for understanding the hydrology of very large, rare floods. Such floods are increasingly posing risks to human habitation. More that 3 decades of research in palaeoflood hydrology produced spectacular advances in capabilities for : accurately determining palaeoflood ages; quantifying the magnitudes and dynamics of palaeoflood processes; and incorporating palaeoflood data into various modeling procedures for risk assessments
