Student project

Land-based sensors can often be subject to damage or malfunction in a natural hazard, and direct measurement of flood levels can also be a dangerous exercise. This study, completed in December 2017, applied technology developments, including those gathered from recent space missions, to inform the flood modelling process. In particular, the role of errors within the modelling process was explored to give an understanding of the confidence provided by any predictions.
