Abstract

Following an extreme flood which hit the river Oder and its tributaries in 1997, the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission started a model simulation study called ODER-LISFLOOD. The objectives of the project are:
- to investigate the effects of land use change on flood risk;
- to assess the effects of possible flood defence measures - scenarios;
- to assess the consequences of climate change trends on flood risk.
These objectives were realized by the development of a flood simulation model (LISFLOOD) for the Oder basin.
