Security of Flood Defenses

This book presents new approaches to security risk analysis and scenario building on the basis of water works such as flood barriers and storm surge barriers. Defending flood barriers is not only important because of climate change and rising sea levels, but also due to the vulnerability of fresh water supplies and the increasing number of people living in vulnerable low-lying river and sea deltas.

  • Presents new approaches to security risk analysis and scenario building.
  • Performs in-depth risk analyses for a number of different flood defense systems.
  • The methods described are useful for security professionals, engineers and scientists alike.
