Prof Fenner paper wins award

last modified Nov 14, 2019 12:18 PM
Professor Dick Fenner and his co-authors Dr Lan Hoag (IBM) and Maggie Skandarian (Portland Bureau of Environmental Services, USA) have been highly commended in the Outstanding Paper Award by the Journal of Flood Risk Management.

The paper is "A conceptual approach for evaluating the multiple benefits of urban flood management practices", published by the Journal of Flood Risk Management and can be found at the following link .

These awards consider all papers published in volume 11 of the journal during 2018.  The paper was based on work carried out under EPSRC’s Blue Green Cities project and develops  a spatial analysis of the dominant and relevant benefits of urban flood management based on context and location specific evaluations. It proposes a detailed methodology for assessing new concepts of  benefit profile and benefit intensity, used to describe flood management practices which utilise green infrastructure.

The paper provides a case study based on the application of these concepts in Portland, Oregon to evaluate some of the multiple benefits of the East Lents Floodplain Restoration Project.
