Keywords: SCS-CN model, inundation analysis, land use, urban mountain, rainfall-runoff calculation

Flooding and waterlogging are frequent disasters that pose serious threats to the safety of human lives and infrastructure. We propose a method of estimating the inundation area in urban mountainous zones based on the soil conservation service curve number (SCS-CN) model. Remote sensing data are used to localize parameters and ensure model accuracy, and are combined with topographic maps to determine land-use type, slope, and waterlogged ground. Watershed analysis based on the SCS-CN model is performed to obtain rainfall-runoff data. The inundation area is then estimated from the rainfall data, and the spatial and temporal distribution characteristics of the flood inundation area are analyzed from the perspective of land use. Experimental results from a case study in Mingxi, China, verify the effectiveness of this method for the analysis of flood inundation in urban mountainous areas.
