Abstract - This section will be completed in the final report.

Key Words— Natural hazards, large flood events, flood risk assessment metrics, flood hazards

The Introduction section should contain literature citations to discuss other similar proposals.

* CSU expect 12-15 references for this section (in-text citation is compulsory).

Below is the rough guide to follow the structure of the Bibliography (Introduction).
Please also follow the Introduction section of the attached papers from HD students of this subject.
Rough Guide to the Structure of the Annotated Bibliography (Introduction), as follows:
Section 1: Significance of the research
Why is it an interesting or useful problem (why it is significant / impact)?

Section 2: How original is the approach?

Section 3-4: Literature review in the area what you are working
* What things were proposed and measure in the literature?

What are the researchers trying to find out?

• Why is it an interesting or useful problem?
• How original is the approach?
• What things were proposed?
• What things were measured?
• What were the results, that is, what do the authors
• conclude and what is the evidence?

Section 5: Research gap

- What are the limitations of their work?
- What are the holes in their work?
- what not have been done in the area what you are working

Section 6: Aim of your research

- What you are doing to overcome the research gap
- What is the aim of your work
- this should be aligned with your produced results

* PS – You should not write any of these questions in your assignment, this is just a guide to get the right
flow of the text .


The methods should be adequately explained, how the research was conducted.

What are you going to propose to solve the problem that is existing in the current/existing solutions;
(Mention the initial solution here). You can use a diagram to clarify that with writing text.
How you are going to do your research (step by step methodology is needed).

A. Data Collection
Events of large flood information collected ……….

B. Data Inclusion Criteria

Certain attributes such as reference number…….

C. Data Analysis
First, we analyzed the …….

All analyses were carried out using MATLAB (MathWorks Inc., Natick, MA, USA) R2015b on a computer
with an Intel Core i7 CPU.


The discussion is the productive, creative and innovative part of writing a paper. It is the thinking about
the implications of the results that you got, and the literature search for a comparable or contradictive
paper that you learn something.

Are the claims in this section supported by the results, do they seem reasonable? Have the authors
indicated how the results relate to expectations and to earlier research?

REFERENCES (minimum 12 references (except web links) are needed to pass this assignment)

References should be consistent, follow the same style for all the references, probably IEEE style.

Appendix (if needed)

Most of the mathematical explanation should go to the Appendix section. Too many equations distract the
flow of the work. Qualitative descriptions or graphs are preferred mechanism for explaining relationships.
Derivation of the formula should go to the Appendix.
