  • Flood Hazard Mapping: Uncertainty and its Value in the Decision-making Process

    By Micah Mukungu Mukolwe

    Computers are increasingly used in the simulation of natural phenomena such as floods. However, these simulations are based on numerical approximations of equations formalizing our conceptual understanding of flood flows. Thus, model results are intrinsically subject to uncertainty and the use of…
