Webinar 2: Current topics in flood hydrology
The second webinar in our new digital series will introduce some current topics in flood hydrology. We will start to explore some typical questions which practicing hydrologists are faced with, focusing on the UK context. Some are much more straightforward to answer than others.
Duncan Faulkner, Head of Hydrology, will lead you through our second webinar covering questions such as:
- Are big floods happening more often?
- If so, what are the implications for design of flood defences?
- How can we know whether natural flood management is effective?
- Just how big can a flood get?
- Is it true that a 100-year flood happens every year?
We’d love to hear from you, so there’ll be a Question and Answer session at the end of the webinar.
