    For less-developed regions like the Blue Ridge Mountains, data are limited that link basin-scale land use with stream quality. Two pairs of lightly-impacted (90–% forested) and moderately-impacted (70–80% forested) sub-basins of the upper Little Tennessee River basin in the southern Blue Ridge were identified for comparison. The pairs contain physically similar stream reaches, chosen. A year storm does not always lead to a year flood, but both of these extreme events occur with the same interval of frequency. A year flood takes into account both the effects of heavy rainfall, the saturation of the soil, and the amount of pavement in the area over which the rain is falling. Chapter 1 of Our Dynamic Planet is ‘ Drainage basin hydrology and geomorphology ’.. It comprises 26 pages divided into the following sections: • A systems approach to drainage basins • River discharge • River processes and landforms • Case study of the forming of a large waterfall, Victoria Falls,on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia Chapter 2 of Our Dynamic Planet is ‘ Flooding. South Carolina with at least 20 locations exceeding the established flood stages. Flooding from this event resulted in 19 fatalities. Nine of these fatalities occurred in Richland County, which includes the main urban center of Columbia. South Carolina State Officials said damage losses were $ billion.

    Trends Affecting Urban Flooding. Four major trends are driving the current and future magnitude of urban flooding: The U.S. population is growing and is concentrated in urban areas. Policies that facilitate occupancy in flood-prone areas are placing more people in harm’s way.
