Comparison between Flooded Areas and Flood-Risk Areas. Case of Var department (France)

Abstract : June 15 and 16th, 2010, heavy rainfall strikes the department of the Var and provoked numerous floods. The French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy decided to launch studies in order to define the flood extension. The aim of this paper is to compare these limits of the flood-risk area and that of the 2010 flooded zone. Studies have shown that hydrogeomorphological mapping appears as being the best method to define the flood-risk area for such an event. But it was not carried out everywhere.
