River Flooding Science

This online e-Learning module is designed for existing flood risk professionals (asset managers, partnership managers, flood risk managers) who are looking to develop their river flooding and science knowledge together with a wider understanding of flood risk modelling and the science behind it. This module will also be of interest to civil engineering and other graduates looking to develop specific knowledge in river flooding.

The focus of this short module is on fundamental processes linked to river hazards, including floods. It introduces key datasets and methods used in river flood risk assessment, referring to best practice guidance (e.g. UKCP18). It explores potential changes in river hydrological/hydraulic processes over different timescales in response to internal and external controls, including climate change.
