Case studies on climate change in floodplain mapping. Volume 1 / Natural Resources Canada, Public Safety Canada.: M113-3/5-2018-1E-PDF

"This document aims to advance climate change considerations in floodplain mapping by providing examples of methods used by early adopters. ... The document is complementary to the Climate Change section in the Federal Hydrologic and Hydraulic Procedures for Flood Hazard Delineation and is not intended to be prescriptive nor provide definitive guidance, but rather outline learning opportunities for flood mapping projects and activities across Canada. The examples are documented as case studies and were selected based on a review of current floodplain mapping methods in communities across Canada, identifying those that actively incorporate climate change and were willing to participate in developing the Guideline Series. This series of case studies will be updated periodically as new case studies become available ... Future volumes of this document will include additional case studies as well as an updated introduction to incorporating climate change into floodplain mapping."--Summary of case studies, pages 4-7.
