原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Floods are one of the most devastating natural events that lead to enormous and recurring loss of life, properties, and resources around the globe. In India, floods remain a major hazard during the monsoon season in many parts of the country but most seriously in the flat and monotonous Gangetic plains in the Himalayan foreland. One of the most flood-prone rivers in India is the Kosi in north Bihar, eastern India, which also forms the largest active megafan in the world. The Kosi River is known as the “sorrow of Bihar” because of its anomalous behavior and the damage it causes due to frequent floods in this region. This study evaluates the flood hazard and flood vulnerability as separate entities and combines them to assess the flood risk in the Kosi megafan region....
