New research on the probability of widespread flooding

We are pleased to announce a new paper on statistical methods to estimate the probability of widespread flooding, just published in the international journal Environmetrics.

The paper is the latest output from a programme of research by JBA Risk Management Ltd and the JBA Trust, working with Lancaster University.

This new paper includes updates to the methodology for modelling the risk of widespread floods first developed through research at JBA and Lancaster University. In doing so, it investigates approaches that can be used for both annual maximum and annually aggregated assessments of river flooding over an extensive river network.
