IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Basinwide flood-risk mapping: beware hydropendicitis
Author : Duncan W Reed
Basinwide flood-risk mapping has become semi-standard in the UK. The undue dominance of hydraulic modeling over hydrological analysis is discussed, and a number of flaws noted. It is suggested that the study of inter-site dependence in flooding can contribute to improved practice in flood-risk mapping. This will only happen if river modelers in the UK acknowledge the neglect of data analysis.
