Summary Objective: Establish whether fine scale (fine grid) models of water body surges (generated by wind, atmospheric pressure, and tides) can improve forecast accuracy over the large scale models currently used for national surge prediction. Key Customer Purpose: Investigate ways of improving surge prediction to strengthen the data underpinning flood defence policy.
