2019 update

This research has now become operational guidance and an update will be published summer 2019. The update is a new user guide, updated technical report and data. 

We will post a link to the reports here and mark which of the original reports are now superseded.  

Original research 2011
The project has produced a number of very useful outputs which will feed into coastal flood modelling and mapping, scheme design, strategic planning purposes (Shoreline Management Plans) and Flood Risk Assessments (at all levels): •Consistent set of design sea levels around England, Wales and Scotland; Consistent set of design swell waves around England, Wales and Scotland; Best Practice Guidance on applying these datasets; Levels and spatial data (most free and commercial GIS will be able to open, manipulate and view the files).
