Using SWOT to monitor flood dynamics in complex river corridors

Measuring and monitoring of river water surfaces is essential for the accurate characterisation of flow and river-landscape interactions, including with complex vegetation on floodplains. Read more

Vulnerability of low-lying transportation networks to coastal flooding

Transportation infrastructure networks such as roads and railways are fundamental to societal functioning, but are especially vulnerable to disruption by natural hazards, including floods. Read more

Understanding process interactions that cause wave overtopping for hazard managers

A 1m rise in mean sea level is almost certain this century and it is estimated that 20% of England’s coastal defences could fail under just half this rise (Committee on Climate Change, 2018). Read more

Augmenting Storm Surge Forecasting with Machine Learning

Storm surges can have economically and societally devastating consequences to coastal communities. Improved forecasting is a fundamental objective for the Flood Forecasting Centre and the longevity of critical infrastructures such as the Thames Barrier. Read more

Nature-based solutions and changing flood risk under marine transgression

With a changing climate and rising sea levels, the need to examine the future of sea defences is widely recognized but rarely considered in the broader context of marine transgression of our coasts and estuaries, that is, the landward migration/retreat of a shoreline relative to rising sea level over longer timescales (decades and centuries). Read more

The impact of sea level rise on flooding in Venice and implications for the MOSE storm surge barrier

Coastal flooding is already one of the most dangerous and costly natural hazards that humanity faces globally and yet it will become even more frequent and challenging to manage because of climate change and other factors. Read more

Using historic data to assess changes in flooding in the Clyde Estuary, Scotland

Floods are the most frequent and costly natural hazard facing the UK, costing the UK around £2.2 billion each year. Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and highly vulnerable to flooding. Read more
