Abstract

In this discussion, the authors will point out that even if Bomers et al. (Nat Hazards 97:309–334, 2019) tackle an important problem, ignoring the uncertainties related to the roughness coefficients, Manning coefficients, the downstream boundary and most importantly the errors of the chosen software, HEC-RAS, are serious shortcomings of their study.

Uncontrolled Keywords

HEC-RAS; Discharge propagation; Monte Carlo; Manning coefficient; Downstream boundary condition
