A Method to Assess Localized Impact of Better Floodplain Topography on Flood Risk Prediction

Figure 3

The graph (a) shows SRTM bank height variations (at 90 m resolution) along the river chainage, their deviation from a subreach linear approximation (red dashed line), and the kinematic wave along the entire main stem of the Zambezi River (blue line). The plot (b) illustrates the deviation of each subreach from the kinematic wave flow profile.
