Dissertation abstract from Y. Budiyono on Flood risk modeling in Jakarta: development and usefulness in a time of climate change Yus Budiyono graduated in November 2018 at the VU Amsterdam University.

In the model, hazard is represented by inundation maps showing the flood extent and depth for floods with different probabilities and of different severity.
