Environment Agency, EDF Energy Plc

Hazards

Coastal Erosion, Coastal Flooding, High impact low probability event, Sea level rise, Storms and gales wind

The aim of this innovation project is to develop 2-D data fields for storm surges and waves along relevant affected regions as well as new calculations of extreme value statistics for those regions. Site-by-site analyses of tide/surge/wave combinations will be also carried out, feeding into the downstream modelling of the two partners. Overall, the project outputs will support project partners in planning and mitigation, the siting and protection of coastal infrastructure, and long-term investment decisions.
