To this end, however, authorities and society should: On the other hand, the vulnerability to heavy rainfall depends on the physical conditions of the basins.

Precipitation rapidly exceeded mm in a single day and more than mm in three days in the Papagayo basin. The human cost of poor preparation for disasters. The municipalities most affected are Chilpancingo and Acapulco, where much of the population of the state of Guerrero lives. Part 3 details the methodology for flood-risk analysis. Inundaciones en el Estado de Veracruz. Journal of Geophysical Research: DesInventar does not provide an actual account of the physical characteristics of floods, but serves as a flood-activity indicator.

For instance, it is generally towards the end of the rainy season in Mexico when soil moisture reaches a peak and the increased runoff may cause floods.

Floods are probably the type of natural disasters with greater social, economic and environmental costs Istomina, Kocharyan, and Lebedeva, ; Messner and Meyer, ; Re, M. Direct runoff, Q, as a function of CN was calculated in navional present study risegos rainfall values larger than P The region most affected by floods was around Laguna de Tres Palos Fig.


It would also be adequate to include the effect of sediments on riverbeds as a vulnerability factor, since it results in a lower streamflow capacity.

The regions that show the largest increase in flood occurrence Fig. Under a simple naturalistic focus, one may think that the change in the hydrological cycle climate change has led to the increased frequency in the number of floods observed, but from a risk perspective one should consider changes in the natural hazard as well as in the vulnerability context in which more frequent intense rainfall is now occurring.

Deforestation for agriculture, cattle ranching and urban expansion has increased in Mexico in recent decades.

Baja California Sur

It was found that the likelihood of flood reports in the increases over time as a result of a higher vulnerability and not always due to more intense rainfall activity. Spatially distributed storm runoff depth estimation using Landsat images and GIS.

This risk condition may set a value for a Flood Early Warning System to be implemented. In these locations, intense rainfall is related to tropical cyclones, cold surges, mesoscale convective systems or easterly waves, and frequently last for more than three days.

University of Cenaprev, Disasters Management Center. Floods related to intense rains are becoming more frequent due to climate change e. Journal of Hydrology1 In Acapulco, vulnerability and hazard increased in recent years, and hence the frequency of flood events Fig.

Data on the number of floods were obtained from two sources: Springer Science and Business Media. Environment and Urbanization22 1 The quantification of risk and the identification of critical or intolerable risk levels can guide some of the risk management options to reduce the occurrence nacipnal costs of floods.


Land-use cover data were used to determine the characteristics of hydrological soil groups. The trend toward more frequent floods in Mexico in recent decades is not only the result of more intense rainfall, but also a consequence of increased vulnerability.

Atmospheric data riesgo No. Furthermore, the dynamic character of risk may be related to disaster activity.

The rapid transformation of the Mexican territory during the twentieth past century has led to significant vegetation losses Mas et al. The increased risk of floods due to deforestation for specific regions of Mexico where the hazard of intense rainfall associated with various phenomena has emerged, is illustrated below.

A risk-management approach should be followed —including landscape planning— for regions that are highly vulnerable to intense rainfall. TIP16 1 Floods in Tabasco, Mexico: The combination of these factors indicators results in a vulnerability index that shows those areas most likely to be affected flood by intense rainfall.

In general, they result from an intense hydrological cycle and increased human activities that involve changes in the environment. This requires finding creative ways to represent this effect when insufficient data is a limitation.

Sediments from deforested areas that are carried into riverbeds reduce streamflow capacity and results in more frequent floods in river meanders.
