    Alexander Fekete examines in his dissertation how social vulnerability to river floods in Germany can be characterized and measured at sub-national scale. He focuses particularly on the question of how the abstract concept of social vulnerability can be operationalized in the context of flood risk in Germany and how respective indicators might help to identify different patterns of vulnerability.This dissertation also was conducted within the framework of the Disaster Information System for Large-Scale Flood Events Using Earth Observation (DISFLOOD) project, and the results are accessible in a web-based geographical disaster information system (Natural Disasters Networking Platform).
