By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- New research on Flood Risk Management is the subject of a report. According to news originating from Osaka, Japan , by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "With attention focused on flood hazard risk from place to place on a whole flood plain before and after flood hazard reduction and mitigation countermeasures are implemented, the present study proposes a method for evaluating flood hazard risk described using a local inundation depth and its frequency of occurrence." Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from NEWJEC, Inc. , "The method is composed of a rainfall run-off model, a 1-D channel flow model, a depth-integrated 2-D flood model, and several sub-models, such as of a potential damage curve and an evacuation rating curve. To test the applicability of the proposed method, a flood plain located in the northern lake area of Shiga prefecture is chosen for discussion." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The spatial distribution of damage resulting from each flood is thus evaluated before and after countermeasures are implemented."
