  1. 1. Mapping future floods in coastal Bangladesh - Impacts of projected changes in sea level and precipitation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Agnes Pierre; [2022]
    Keywords : flood modelling; TFM-DYN; sea level rise; land subsidence; extreme precipitation; tidal flooding; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The exposure to flooding in coastal Bangladesh is expected to increase throughout the century as a result of climate change-induced sea level rise and intensified monsoon precipitation. The current consequences of flooding include damage to infrastructure, economy, and health through inundation and saline intrusion, and are likely to affect a larger population in the future.
