Seed bank of seasonally flooded grassland: experimental simulation of flood and post-flood
Wetland seed banks comprise the propagules of plant species that have species-specific germination requirements for germination in either flooded or dry conditions. At the community level, wetland structure and succession ...
Morphological effects of flooding on Styrax pohlii and the dynamics of physiological responses during flooding and post-flooding conditions
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-10-01)
Styrax pohlii naturally occurs in flood-prone areas and its capacity to survive floods is intriguing. Here we checked whether flooded potted plants of this species develop adventitious roots with aerenchyma, how rapid ...
Flood Risk Assessment in Humanitarian Logistics Process Design
(Centro de Ciencias Aplicadas y Desarrollo Tecnológico, 2014)
Leaf traits related to productivity in Populus deltoides during the post-flooding period
Key message: After a flooding period,Populus deltoidesplants compensate for the reduced growth under flooding by substituting the leaf area loss instead of increasing the leaf photosynthetic activity. Abstract: Flooding ...
Some physiological and morphological responses of Pyrus boissieriana to flooding
European pear is a flooding-sensitive species, and for its cultivation in lowland areas, it is necessary to carry out the grafting of scions of commercial pear varieties into rootstocks belonging to flooding-tolerant wild ...
Potential increase in floods in California’s Sierra Nevada under future climate projections
California’s mountainous topography, exposure to occasional heavily moisture-laden storm systems, and varied communities and infrastructures in low lying areas make it highly vulnerable to floods. An important question ...
Computing, a Powerful Tool for Improving the Parameters Simulation Quality in Flood Prediction
(Elsevier Science, 2014-06)
Floods have caused widespread damage throughout the world. Modelling and simulation provide solutions and tools which enable us to forecast and make necessary steps toward prevention. One problem that must be handled by ...
Housing bubbles and the increase of flood exposure. Failures in flood risk management on the Spanish south-eastern coast (1975-2013)
In recent decades, there has been a significant increase in economic losses caused by flood events on the coastal region of south-eastern Spain. The increase of extreme rainfall events forecast by the climate change models ...
Does the spatiotemporal distribution of tweets match the spatiotemporal distribution of flood phenomena? A study about the River Elbe Flood in June 2013
(The Pennsylvania State UniversityUniversity ParkPennsylvania, 2014-05-18)
In this paper we present a new approach to enhance information extraction from social media that relies upon the geographical relations between twitter data and flood phenomena. We use specific geographical features like ...
