Re‐envisioning stormwater infrastructure for ultrahazardous flooding
Published Online: Feb 06 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1414
Ultrahazardous flooding occurs on low relief topography at the foot of mountains, and is characterized by rapid onset, high velocity flooding with loads of sediment and debris and unpredictable flood paths. 20th century stormwater infrastructure has sought to contain flooding and maximize land for development by relying heavily on gray (hardened) infrastructure leaving a legacy of environmental challenges and unrealized urban amenities from riparian corridors. We envision a more sustainable approach involving erodible corridors with engineered systems to control flood peaks and sediment fluxes as well as simulation and forecast systems to support flood risk planning, preparedness, and emergency management.

Drought: Progress in broadening its understanding
Published Online: Dec 05 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1407
Conceptual diagram illustrating the cause, impacts of and resilience to drought. It shows the cause–impact resilience of drought and linkages among the various aspects of droughts. Note: ENSO, El Niño/Southern Oscillation; SSTs, sea surface temperatures; ITCZ, Inter‐Tropical Convergence Zone. Boxes indicate the different aspects of drought. Yellow arrows show linkages from one aspect of drought to the other indicating cause–effect relationships.
