A year flood is a flood event that has a 1 in chance (1% probability) of being equaled or exceeded in any given year. The year flood is also referred to as the 1% flood, since its annual exceedance probability is 1%.

For coastal or lake flooding, the year flood is generally expressed as a flood elevation or depth, and may include wave effects.

Flooding may occur as an overflow of water from water bodies, such as a river, lake. The accuracy of the generated flood inundation map was assessed utilizing the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve approach.

Area under the ROC curve values of % (training) and % (validation) indicate that, overall, the presented approach provides a good indicator of flood inundation areas in the study area. The La Niña event of –11, and the consequent severe floods that affected a large part of the Magdalena-Cauca basin in Colombia, underlined several weaknesses in the approach to managing flood risks in the country.

One identified weakness was the absence of advance warning of flood events through flood forecasting and warning systems.

This volume focuses on the breakdown in sustainability--the capacity of the planet to provide quality of life now and in the future--that is signaled by disaster.
