Flood Risk Assessment of River Dnieper, Ukraine

Case Study: Hydrological Study

Location: River Dnieper, Ukraine

Objective: Hydro-GIS undertook a site specific flood modelling study to assess the risk for two locations in the city of Kremenchuck, Ukraine as part of an insurance related study for ABS Consulting. 

Outcomes: The modelling initially required an extreme value analysis of flow data to generate the 50-year and 100-year flood magnitudes on the River Dnieper.

Hydraulic modelling was then used to identify the flood levels associated with these flows at each of the site locations.

Flood extents and depths were then mapped using a cell based modelling routine in ArcGIS and an underlying digital terrain model.
