(2017): Land use change impacts on floods at the catchment scale: Challenges and opportunities for future research

Abstract:
Research gaps in understanding flood changes at the catchment scale caused by changes in forest management, agricultural practices, artificial drainage, and terracing are identified. Potential strategies in addressing these gaps are proposed, such as complex systems approaches to link processes across time scales, long-term experiments on physical-chemical-biological process interactions, and a focus on connectivity and patterns across spatial scales. It is suggested that these strategies will stimulate new research that coherently addresses the issues across hydrology, soil and agricultural sciences, forest engineering, forest ecology, and geomorphology. Plain Language Summary This commentary explores research gaps in the field of land use change impacts on floods at the catchment scale and proposes possible ways forward for addressing these gaps. Specifically the impacts of forest management, agricultural practices, artificial drainage, and terracing on flood generation at the catchment scale are explored. Potential strategies in addressing research gaps in these fields are complex systems approaches to link processes across time scales, long-term experiments on physical-chemical-biological process interactions, and a focus on connectivity and patterns across spatial scales. It is suggested that these strategies will stimulate new research that coherently addresses the issues across hydrology, soil and agricultural sciences, forest engineering, forest ecology, and geomorphology.
