Much of the UK's sea coast is low-lying, leading to high vulnerability to coastal inundation events, as has been known since long before the Great North Sea floods of 1953.
Through the previous Hydro-JULES 1 project and the ongoing CHAMFER project, new cutting-edge tools are in development that will greatly improve our ability to predict such events in the UK.
A new globalised coupled model approach has recently been developed through the CHAMFER project which provides new and much-improved ability to simulate the behaviour of such catchments (UM_JULES).
