The index of vulnerability to heavy rainfall in rose from low or average values to high and very high vulnerability values over most of the coastal region and lowlands, particularly near Laguna de Tres Palos, in the southwest of the domain. An evaluation of the hydrologic soil groups as used in the SCS runoff method on Rangelands. Linking land use, erosion and sediment yields in river basins. DesInventar does not provide an actual account of the physical characteristics of floods, but serves rieshos a flood-activity indicator.

This study quantifies natural hazard by means of daily extreme rainfall figures that are equal or larger than the 95 th percentile of re precipitation P95 from gridded fields within a rainfall grid with a km spatial resolution.

Environmental monitoring and assessment64 1 United Nations Disasters Relief Coordinator. Changes in precipitation and temperature extremes in Central America and northern South America, Sediments from deforested areas that are carried into riverbeds reduce streamflow capacity and results in more frequent floods in river meanders. Middle States Geographer40 INEGI, and On the other hand, the vulnerability to heavy rainfall depends on the physical conditions of the basins.

Estimation of vulnerability and risk to meteorological drought in Mexico. Flood damage, vulnerability and risk perception-challenges for flood damage research. This risk condition may set a value for a Flood Early Warning System to be implemented.


dde Floods in Tabasco, Mexico: Dots correspond to estimates of accumulated deforested areas in Mexico km 2 between and It can be described in terms of physical, social and economical factors. April 17, ; Accepted: Consequently, flood-risk management should include structural measures, such as watershed restoration and land cover – use planning.

Consequently, disasters are not inevitable since they are frequently associated with lack of planning and prevention measures.

This effect may be associated with the trend to a higher incidence of tropical cyclones along the Mexican Pacific coast in recent decades http: Inundaciones en el Estado de Veracruz.

Water resources32 4 This measure of hazard was obtained empirically by examining the meteorological conditions that led to floods. A normalized vulnerability between 0 and 1 has been categorized into five vulnerability levels: Chapter 10 Estimation of direct runoff from storm rainfall.

The vulnerability index to heavy rainfall was defined for catchment areas Fig. The number of floods Last forty years is higher in regions where physical vulnerability, related to the local orography and the presence of rivers, results in larger runoff.

The naturalistic focus, which tends to explain the occurrence of disasters only in terms of natural hazards such cenwpred intense rainfall, is not adequate to explain the increased frequency of hydro-meteorological disasters, at least for the case of Mexico.

During the altas half of the summer, daily rainfall above P95 is more frequent across the Mexican territory, which determines that most floods occur during September and October.

The increased risk of floods due to deforestation for specific regions of Mexico where the hazard of intense rainfall associated rirsgos various phenomena has emerged, is illustrated below. To this end, however, authorities and society should:. Geomorphology61 Floods related to intense rains are becoming more frequent due to climate change e. The regions most vulnerable to heavy rainfall are located in northwestern Mexico state of Sinaloathe regions adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico Tabasco, Veracruz and Tamaulipasthe valleys of the central part of the Mexican Highlands, the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, along the coast of Chiapas, cenapree the Colorado river delta.


United States Department of Agriculture. It may take some time to reduce vulnerability effectively naconal means of robust structural measures, but in the mean time, early-warning systems referred to critical risk levels could be useful to reduce the impacts of floods on society.

It would also be adequate to include the effect of sediments on riverbeds as a naciohal factor, since it results in a lower streamflow capacity. Natural Hazards64 3 The vulnerability index increased in most regions between andalthough it decreased in some areas Fig. As landscapes change from forests to agriculture and cattle-ranching land, or to urban settlements, they become less permeable and thus more vulnerable to intense rainfall since water does not infiltrate and accumulates at the surface, hence causing floods Singh and Singh, Moreover, in Tapachula or Acapulco, there is a trend toward more extreme precipitation events also contributing to the higher flood risk in recent decades forty years.

When this information is combined with a vulnerability estimate, those regions with a large probability of experiencing a flood are identified Fig.
