This book investigates river flooding, looking specifically at flood risk and management. It begins by explaining the nature of the flood problem and causes of floods before considering flood risk and human vulnerability through a rich mixture of contemporary and original case studies drawn from various locations and at different scales. It then reviews the impacts of river flooding, actual and perceived, including the role of the media. The book concludes with an up-to-date review of flood management approaches, including the role of risk registers and sustainable solutions.

Top Spec books are aimed at Post-16 geography students.
