Timely flood forecasting and warning is an effective way of reducing the impacts of flooding to people and property. We have a dedicated team of hydrologists, meteorologists, and software developers who specialise in flood forecasting and warning services. We work with national government agencies and companies to enable effective warning and forecasting.

The models and data underlying the flood forecasting process are crucial. We can advise you on model type and schematisation for all sources of flood risk from localised flooding to flooding from rivers and the sea.
