Floods: Natural Hazards Series

Floods can cause enormous devastation that has lasting social, psychological, economic and environmental impacts on a community. Flooding can also be a seasonal weather event that helps sustain life across many ecosystems. In this interview led program we look at: the causes and consequences of flooding; the 2005 flood event in Carlisle, UK; the 2011 flood event in Queensland, Australia; the impact of climate change; and flood management and mitigation alternatives. We talk with engineers, including an environmental engineer, hydrologists, a senior advisor for emergency risk management, and the Chief Executive of the Carlisle City Council. Ideal for middle and senior secondary to TAFE in geography, engineering and environmental studies, it is a fascinating exploration of the wide ranging impact a natural hazard can have. VEA12047
