Hi
I can recomand few softwares that I used when I studied geomorphological and hidrological hazards, as: SAGA for topographical indices, ARCGIS 9, Surfer8 (for slope map, aspect map and other indices). Special for flood analyse I recomand to you: SAGA (is a new cersion of Digem 2.1), Map Window and ARCGIS 3.2 for hidro extensions or ARCGIS 8.1, 8.3, 9X etc. For more of this programms, like Surfer 8 for example, you cand find demo version, work in that and capture image in finally with Prin Screen task, because It cant permit export or save. Please contact me for other informations if you consider that my answer can help you. Good luck,
Roxana

Hello,

I would suggest going to:

http://hazards.fema.gov

and checking out the information on the DFIRM Production Tools. This is predominantly a suite of custom ArcGIS extensions that are available to mapping partners in communities across the US via a Citrix portal.

HTH!

I would suggest to look into ILWIS 3.3 Academic. (Google it)
It is a very unknown, but beautiful GIS application, which has very clear tutorials, many concentrated on hazards!
