Flood Hazard Scenarios in a Pleistocene-Holocene Basinby Mattie Fincher Coxe, Louisiana State Univ, Baton Rouge, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Water Resources Planning and Management and Urban Water Resources
Abstract: Technical scenarios are used to characterize the flood hazard in the Bayou Fountain Basin, an area of complex geomorphology and urbanization. Floods from three sources, 1) local precipitation, 2) backwater from the Amite River, and 3) the Mississippi River, are described and areas of especial hazard are identified. Technical scenarios such as these are useful in land planning and as an adjunct to conventional hydrologic studies.
