Dependence between high sea-level and high river discharge increases flood hazard in global deltas and estuaries
Description: "When river and coastal floods coincide, their impacts are often worse than when they occur in isolation; such floods are examples of 'compound events'. To better understand the impacts of these compound events, we require an improved understanding of the
