THE IMPACT OF COASTLINE ANTHROPOGENIC GEOMORPHOLOGICAL ALTERATIONS ON FLOOD HAZARDS

Abstract

In March 2015, an unprecedented rainfall event occurred in the hyper-arid Atacama Desert of Northern Chile, known as the driest place on Earth. Characterized by scarce vegetation and limited infiltration capacity, the region was hardly prepared for such heavy precipitation. The exceptional magnitude of the rainfall, coupled with human-induced geomorphological alterations in both the river channel and the coastline (filled with mine tailings over decades), caused catastrophic damage and loss of life.
