This is an infinitely marvelous and beautiful universe which we are privileged to inhabit. Look inward to the molecules of life and the heart of the atom, or outward to moon, sun, planets, stars, the Orion Nebula where new suns and worlds are coming into being even as you watch, the Andromeda Nebula which is actually a whole sister galaxy: it is all the same cosmos, and every part of it is. In Part 1, the attributes of cities and floods are discussed in order to establish the framework within which urban flood management will be explored through the subsequent chapters.

Preface vii Principal units,solar quantities,and fundamental constants xi 1 The Sun’s domain Fire of life 2 Radiation from the Sun 3 Physical characteristics of the Sun 9 Gravity’s center 12 Spectroscopy and the ingredients of the Sun 16 The planets are inside the expanding Sun 20 How the solar system came into being 23 2 The Sun as a star. A catalogue of the significant rainfall occurrences used as a basis for the GTSMR is Advice on how to take climate change into consideration when using the design rainfalls is provided in Book 1; Although at-site frequency analysis of the Annual Maximum Series (AMS) of observed rainfall was an integral part of the method adopted.

At the same time the book ensures that discussion of each of the main themes and topics is, as far as is practicable, self-contained. The book is timely in several aspects. It addresses the topicality and universality of floods which are an increasing hazard at a time of global environmental change (climate, land use, population distribution etc.). Floods can occur anywhere as a result of heavy rain and can be of different intensities—from small flash floods to sheets of water engulfing huge areas of land, causing destruction either way. Like most parts of the world, India is vulnerable to floods taking a toll on its economic, social, and human resource potential and affecting growth Cited by: 2.

The envelope for the world's maximum observed floods (Herschy, ; IAHS, ) yields a maximum specific discharge of 53 m 3 /s/km² for a catchment of this size. The estimate made by López. The maximum historic rainfall-runoff floods measured in the United States, the People's Republic of China and the world all plot close to a smooth curve of drainage area versus discharge.
