The results of the report found that the methods of the Flood Estimation Handbook (FEH) show some evidence of higher uncertainty in groundwater dominated catchments compared with rainfall dominated catchments. Due to these results, a list of suggestions was produced to provide improvements to FEH and alternative methods. We also made some recommendations for current practice and future research.
