Future Danube Fluvial Flood for the Entire Basin – Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

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

The OASIS Future Danube River Segment Flood Frequencies under Climate Change provide future flood recurrence intervals (years) of a range of historical flood intervals (10, 50, 100, 1000-year floods). They represent indicators of future flood risks in comparison to historical/present day conditions, e.g. the present 100-year flood may become a 50-year (increased risk) or a 200-year flood (decreased risk). The unique features are the adherence to both insurance industry and climate impact science standards: It is simulated by a continuous, distributed hydrological model driven by a state of the art stochastic weather generator over 10000-year synthetic climate periods under IPCC climate change scenarios (RCP-4.5, RCP-8.5 and 4 GCMRCM model combinations). Historical flood intervals relate to the baseline period 1970-1999 and future periods are the medium (2020-2049) and long-term (2070-2099).
