Tools and guidance for covariate analysis of flood and wave threshold exceedances

This NERC funded project aimed to transfer advances in statistics to flood risk science.

Working in partnership with Lancaster University, the six month PURE (Probability, Uncertainty and Risk in the Environment) project enabled the Research Associate, Ross Towe, to develop a prototype/demonstrator to help risk analysts in trialling and experimenting with advanced statistical methodology for the analysis of threshold exceedance data.

The two main applications are river flood risk and offshore oceanography.

A case study of this project is now available to view here.
