This Safety Guide discusses the phenomena, both natural and human induced, that may cause floods or droughts at coastal and river sites, and gives an outline of the methods that can be used for, and the critical factors involved in, the evaluation of such events and of their associated effects. Possible combinations of two or more phenomena that can give rise to flooding at a site are also discussed.
