Short summary
Different kinds of hydrological extreme events occur, varying from those with slow spreading and large duration and those with very fast spreading, short duration and concentrated impact (flash flood events). This approach bridges the gap between different flood mechanisms occurring at different spatial scales in the Portuguese territory. Results show a good ability to capture different types of floods in a qualitative index at a national scale.
