Description/Abstract

In this paper, land cover was predicted from
Landsat TM imagery and used to generate spatially-distributed
friction coefficients. Flood inundation was then predicted using
the raster-based model LISFLOOD-FP, based on friction and
three different elevation models. Sensitivity of LISFLOOD-FP
to spatially-distributed friction was assessed. It was found that
effect of friction on the flood wave is small when compared to the
underlying elevation, but is greatest during the recession phase
of the hydrograph.
