    Abstract

    Rivers in the Lower Mekong Basin, Cambodia, receive additional water and waterborne sediments annually during the monsoon. In the 2011 monsoon season, the region was inundated by extreme flood events. This chapter identifies inundation characteristics and explains fluvial landforms developed over a long-term flood history near Phnom Penh and Kampong Thom in Cambodia, based on land classification and field surveys. Understanding the development of fluvial plains and promoting land use in accordance with river behavior can minimize flood risk and allow local populations to live sustainably in flood-prone areas.
