Fluvial and pluvial flood data for German Danube Basin with future climate scenarios – GFZ

Full dataset availability covers all of the German Danube Basin. This is a dataset available for purchase under license. If you are interested in the wider dataset please contact us through the green price on application button on this page.

This data set provides a stochastic event set of flood inundation depth maps (fluvial flood hazard footprints) for the German part of the Danube catchment for current and future climate. The maps provide inundation depth information in cm above ground level on a 100 m grid along the major rivers (4150 km) based on 2D hydro-numeric simulations. Flood event sets are derived for the historical period (1970-1990) and two RCPs (4.5 and 8.5) for the near future (2020-2049) and far future (2070-2099) for four CORDEX models. These flood event sets are created within a continuous long-term simulations of a coupled model chain including the IMAGE stochastic multi-variable, multi-site weather generator, the eco-hydrological model SWIM and 1D river network coupled with 2D hydro-numeric hinterland inundation model.
