Field survey and glacier lake outburst flood risk assessment data of Tsho Rolpa glacial lake, Nepal
This collection contains field survey data, exposure data and flood predictions of Tsho Rolpa glacial lake, Nepal, for the NERC SHEAR Catalyst project “WeACT” Web-Based Natural Dam-Burst Flood Hazard Assessment and ForeCasting SysTem (NE/S005919/1). Field survey contains high resolution DEM generated from UAV images and lake bathymetry, carried out in May 2019. Exposure data contains Agriculture land, Buildings, Road, and Population in the potentially impacted areas by glacial lake outburst floods. Outburst flood predictions are based on high-performance hydrodynamic simulations of various dam failure scenarios generated by a dam breach model.
