PROJECT SUMMARY

This project was undertaken in partnership with the Met Office to develop, trial and demonstrate the benefits of a wave ensemble forecasting system for coastal flood forecasting applications. 

The project was driven by the need for more robust forecasts of the risk of (tide plus surge) water level and sea state that can lead to coastal flooding in the UK.

The research report can be downloaded from the Met Office website.
