Abstract: A serious constraint of data availability over flood-prone areas in India limits the potential of carrying out hydrodynamic flood modelling studies. Such difficulties are encountered because of a lack of high-resolution topography, cross-section data of the rivers, and sufficient and accurate calibration and validation data sets. The present study addresses the problems faced in performing a comprehensive 1D-2D coupled flood modelling over a flood disastrous region Jagatsinghpur, Odisha, India. The constraints faced in terms of hydraulic parameters such as water level, discharge, and geometric parameters such as river geometry are investigated. The simulations were performed for a severe flood event in 2011 that incurred heavy socio-economic losses in the district. The establishment of a modelling platform for flood simulation shall elucidate the major constraints faced in hydrodynamic modelling for such flood-prone areas with poor data availability.
