Summary Objectives:- To build a prototype Catchment Management System, by directly linking hydrological and hydraulic models, for the purpose of catchment management planning, with special reference to flood defence issues. Key Customer Purpose:- Support the decision making process for flood defence planning by providing a method to simulate the whole catchment to ensure that flood defence activities do not conflict with other functions and that they are thus technically, economically and environmentally sound and sustainable.
