Abstract (EDOC: 13675)
Despite the high number of flood-damage events in recent years, there are comparatively few data available for detailed analyses of damage-inducing processes. Such analyses, however, are needed for the validation and updating of damage (or loss) models. In order to improve the data base in Germany in the long run, suggestions for the standardised collection of flood damage data are presented in this paper.
