Summary Objectives:- To provide a general tool for the exploration of flooding from the combined effect of high subsurface water levels in association with near-surface runoff. Key Customer Purpose:- Inform MAFF on situations where flood defence strategy needs to be aware of combined surface and subsurface flows and to develop suitable models of the rainfall-runoff process that can be incorporated into continuous simulation models (
