Floods Working Group would like to get a worldwide overview of the existing (published) flood records based on historical or natural archives.
This metadata collection will serve:
- to promote all these records to a broad community (through the FWG website);
- as a first step for the database project of the FWG; and
- as a basis for a review paper on flood reconstructions.
To promote your record(s), please take a few minutes to provide very basic metadata on flood records you produced using this csv file.
Details on the different entries in the file are described here (pdf). Examples are also given in the file.
Please feel free to transfer this request to any colleagues who might be interested.
