Overview

At this evening lecture Ashley Woods will present his award-winning paper on the impact of climate change on flood risk in the UK.

The lecture will:

  • Outline a novel approach to the integration of detailed climate and land-use change data within current flood estimation and modelling frameworks prescribed by the UK planning process for new developments
  • Present the results from the River Cam at Hinxto and compare the current application of climate change predictions to future flood risk assessment  to the Fut-Low scenario developed
  • Demonstrate how current estimates may significantly underestimate the magnitude of a 1-in-100 year flooding event
  • Address the spatial complexity of climate change impacts across the UK and the growing disparity between winter and summer rainfall.
