River Flood Susceptibility Map.

Dataset description

This dataset contains the River Flood Susceptibility Map (RFSM) for 8 different level 1 drainage basins with global coverage. There are two RFSM datasets for each drainage basin. A RFSM of the upstream accumulating area of the flooded river (in km2) and a RFSM of the Strahler stream order of the flooded river. The datasets are in GeoTIFF raster format at a resolution of 1/1200 decimal degrees (~90 m at the equator). Each of the GeoTIFF files is in the WGS84 projection. Also included is a map of the global drainage basins and the corresponding nomenclature. The methodology to produce the data is described in Bernhofen et. al. 2021 "Global Flood Exposure from Different Sized Rivers".
