Floods metadata collection

Can you assist?

PAGES' Floods Working Group (FWG) would like to assemble a worldwide overview of the existing (published) flood records based on historical or natural archives.

This metadata collection will serve:
- to promote all these records to a broad community (through the FWG web site and at the 5th PAGES OSM - Zaragoza, 9-13 May 2017);
- as a first step for the database project of the FWG; and
- as a basis for a review paper on flood reconstructions.

To promote your record(s), please take a few minutes to provide very basic metadata on flood records you produced using this excel file.

Details on the different entries of the excel sheet are described here (pdf).

Examples are also given in the excel spreadsheet.

Once filled in, please email the excel file to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please feel free to transfer this request to any colleagues who might be interested.
