Coastal Flood Modelling and Forecasting

Contact us
1 day

This course explores the drivers of coastal flood risk and the modelling and analytical approaches that have been developed to predict, forecast and prepare for it. We demonstrate that whilst flood modelling and forecasting is a complex and uncertain science, it is maturing, and we are finding intelligent ways to tighten up on uncertainty.

Who should attend?

Those involved in estimating extreme sea levels and wave heights for applications such as flood mapping, flood warning and Flood Risk Assessments. It will also be of interest to professionals and managers who are reviewing coastal studies, or to those who wish to update their knowledge of extreme sea level science.

Course Objectives

On completion of this course attendees should be able to understand the key drivers of coastal flood risk.

Delegates will have an increased knowledge of:

  • Coastal flood risk drivers (e.g. tides, surges, waves, etc)
  • Methods available for the analysis of flood risk drivers (boundary conditions)
  • Coastal flood modelling approaches
  • Coastal flood forecasting
