New paper: Geomorphological effectiveness of floods to rework gravel bars: insight from hyperscale topography and hydraulic modelling

A new paper by Reid et al., supported by the JBA Trust, explores how a 2D flow model can be useful in understanding the evolution of bars in a high energy gravel-bed river.

Scientific evidence supporting the Government’s National Flood Resilience Review

Scientific evidence supporting the Government’s National Flood Resilience Review

The Government’s National Flood Resilience Review was published on 8 September 2016. One of the Review’s critical tasks was to improve the national understanding of flood risk in England. The Review says that experience from recent events has “made it clear that describing flood risk in traditional terms such as a ‘1% chance of flooding’ […]

Susceptibility of catchments to INTense RAinfall and flooding (SINATRA)

Susceptibility of catchments to INTense RAinfall and flooding (SINATRA)

As part of the SINATRA project, we have worked to identify exceptional “rapid-rise” events, a type of flash flooding, in gauged river flow records in the UK.
