Abstract
The socio-economic impacts of flash floods are expected to increase with climate change, which calls for the de- velopment of forecasting methods to anticipate them better. Conventional flash flood forecasting methods typically predict pure hazard information (e.g. discharge at a given river section). The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) found that for emergency management it can be useful to complement these hazard forecasts with methods that translate the hazard into the resulting socio...
