Abstract

Hydrological hazards, or 'hydro-hazards', are defined as "extreme events associated with the occurrence, movement and distribution of water, such as floods and droughts" (Visser-Quinn et al., 2019 [1]). Singular or interacting physical process which drive hydro-hazards can combine to produce a range of compounding and cascading impacts, which may interact across multiple spatial and temporal scales. For example, urban flooding may result from excess runoff from one or multiple sources (e.g., extreme rainfall, groundwater), causing disruption to the built environment.
