  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round
There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Assessing the ecological vulnerability of natural defences and risks to agricultural land following seawater flooding
  Prof R Thompson, Dr M Hanley
Application Deadline: 26 March 2019
Erosion and flooding represent significant threats to our coastlines. In recent years, much progress has been made in understanding the role of natural habitats in providing coastal protection both in isolation and, in combination with, engineered sea defence structures.
  Modelling Global Floods - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof P Bates, Dr J Neal
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Floods are the costliest and most deadly class of natural disaster, affecting 78.1 million people and causing $59Bn in damages in 2016 alone.
  Effect of Vegetation Patch on Compound Channel Flows
  Dr X Tang, Dr M Li
Applications accepted all year round
Many natural rivers and man-made channels have a compound cross-section, which comprises one deep main channel bounded with one or two shallow floodplains, where various vegetation exists.
  Modelling and Monitoring Natural Flood Management Programmes in London
  Dr E Katsou
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The successful candidate will work with project partners to develop a flood risk model, analyse and model range of potential Natural Flood Management techniques to the catchment areas.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round
Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
