1. reconstruction of historical floods at high spatial-temporal resolution allow

insights into flood hazard perception

2. spatial patterns of flood concurrencies reveal local, regional and supraregional

dimensions of flood events

3. changes in flood frequencies (long times series) not coherent between

different rivers

4. reconstruction of underlying climatological causes possible at different scales

5. derivation of damage maps as part of vulnerability analysis possible

6. flood control was exploited for political objectives (transnational comparison)

7. border is reflected in risk perception, risk management and risk assessment

8. today flood risk management is controlled by EU policies

9. technical alterations within Rhine system led to mitigation of flood risk but

today is regarded as major cause for heavy flood events along the middle and

lower Rhine (up- and down-stream effects)

10.implementation of major technical installations (e.g. reservoirs) is under

debate among the local and regional population and part of political

participatory discussion
