OVERALL OBJECTIVES

This project has developed an impact-based surface water flood forecasting model with the Natural Hazards Partnership.

The new model will help the joint Met Office and Environment Agency Flood Forecasting Centre to improve the surface water flooding forecasts and information passed on to emergency responders (Flood Guidance Statements). The Flood Forecasting Centre are undertaking operational trials of the Surface Water Flooding Hazard Impact Model this year.
