Abstract
Joint EPSRC & EA funding
  • Knowledge of location, ownership, condition and impact of flooding infrastructure assets.
  • Land use issues: slow replanting following tree harvesting, soil compaction. Is catchment approach is picking this up?
  • Climate change is being modelled, data is being gathered and updated. Is this being translated into practical guidance.
  • Are different sectors of society disproportionately disadvantage by flooding?
