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

Table 1

Results of the proposed targeted observation analysis. Note that the analysis is based on a 1 : 10,000 year event. Furthermore, we wish to note that the economic impact analyzed here is only from inundation differences and does not include any other changes with potential economic impact such as infrastructure planning or climate change adaptation strategies, for instance.
