Short summary
This study presents how the concept of uncertainty quantification can be applied to river engineering problems and how important it is to understand the limitations of numerical models from a probabilistic point of view. We investigated floodplain friction formulations using different uncertainty quantification methods and estimated their contribution in the final results. The analysis of uncertainties is planned to be integrated in future projects and also extended to more complex scenarios.
