Floods have become increasingly prominent in recent decades, especially in urban areas causing devastating effects on lives and livelihoods worldwide. Efficient tools to assess the drivers of floods, such as increasing urbanization could help to minimize flood hazards. A Google Earth Engine (GEE) application was developed to explore the potential changes (1985-2020) in design peak-flow of urban areas across the conterminous United States driven by land cover change. The results indicate a potential increase in peak-flow in urban areas up to 126.6% in 2020 compared to 1985. Out of the total 3535 study urban areas, about 80% (2840) urban areas increased peak-flow and about 19% (654) decreased peak-flow. A general pattern of increasing peak-flow was observed during 1985-2010 and decreasing pattern during 2010-2020, primarily driven by respective increasing (decreasing) and decreasing (increasing) developed areas (croplands). The GEE application pro-vides crucial information by visualizing both spatial and temporal data that could be useful for decision-makers in developing and improving urban stormwater management plans and policies for efficient resource allocations and reducing flood risks.
