PhD Post: Impact of climate change on extreme flood events – Applications Welcome

2014-07-19

To understand the complex hydrological processes that contribute to flooding, hydraulic flood-risk models are available. However, these models are not designed to accommodate probabilistic climate information, such as available through UKCP09.

This PhD project will be based in the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment and will develop a new innovative statistical model, which can define the flow boundary conditions to drive flood inundation models to simulate the complex climate information effectively and generate emulated outputs. The development of this new technique will help in mapping uncertainty during flood events in future climates.
