National flood modelling for insurance purposes: using IFSAR for flood risk estimation in Europe



National flood modelling for insurance purposes: using IFSAR for flood risk estimation in Europe



Hydrology and Earth System Sciences 9(4): 449-456



Flood risk poses a major problem for insurers and governments who ultimately pay the financial costs of losses resulting from flood events. Insurers therefore face the problem of how to assess their exposure to floods and how best to price the flood element of their insurance products. This paper looks at the insurance implications of recent flood events in Europe and the issues surrounding insurance of potential future events.
