Title: GloFAS: flood hazard map (100 year return period)

Description

This data set shows on a 100-resolution the inundated areas for flood events with a return period of 100-years, based on GloFAS climatology. Permanent water bodies were derived from the Global Lakes and Wetlands Database and from the Natural Earth lakes map (naturalearthdata.com).

This layer is provided in the GloFAS interface as additional information for the user as it it provides a rough indication of where to expect inundations in case of flooding.
