Introduction. Floods, in all their distinct varieties, have become the natural hazard of greatest impact around the globe. These phenomena once constituted natural processes more or less integrated in Cited by: 3.

Explanation: Flood plains are good farming areas because that's where the most fertile land is. Its constantly replenished with fresh silt washed down in a flood. -Timir Sarker School #5.

      Alluvial plains, which are formed by rivers and which may be one of these overlapping types: Alluvial plains, formed over a long period of time by a river depositing sediment on their flood plains or beds, which become alluvial soil.

Flood hazard areas identified on the Flood Insurance Rate Map are identified as a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). SFHA are defined as the area that will be inundated by the flood event having a 1-percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year.

The 1-percent annual chance flood is also referred to as the base flood. The occupancy or use of flood-prone areas involves a degree of risk, the first subject of this chapter.

Advancements in building design may already minimize flood damages and should be explored. Determine if corporate and individual farm owners insure their property differently for flood. The majority of corn grown in the United States is used for feed and other residual uses.

This fact makes these areas attractive for agriculture. The result is a flood. A flood inundates a floodplain. There are different types of floodplains and they are based on they type of flooding that forms them.

Most floods fall into one of three major categories: ♦. One tool in predicting river floods is the monitoring of flood stage. All major rivers in the U.S. have a flood stage -- water level at which that particular body of water begins to threaten the travel, property, and lives of those nearby.
