Abstract: "The extreme summer flood in the Elbe River watershed initiated a debate on the role of forest conversion and afforestation as measures for preventive flood protection. To quantify the effect of forest conversion and afforestation on flood runoff from catchments reliable model calculations are essential. The article overviews the present state of our work and provides an example for a model-based assessment of potential water retention caused by land-use changes in a catchment in the Central Ore Mountains (Saxony, Germany)."
