Flood Hydrology Improvements Programme
This project considers the benefits and risks of moving towards approaches that use open methods and data in flood hydrology. One challenge is translating primarily academic concepts of open science into an operational context. An important question is how open hydrology methods and supporting datasets and software might be funded, maintained and governed. An aspiration of the project is to engage with the hydrological community in the UK to imagine a future of open hydrology and visualise its possibilities.
In order to explore this further we’re working with academic partners from Lancaster University, Newcastle University and the University of Arizona. Also in our project team are the environmental artists somewhere-nowhere, who will be developing materials and artwork to engage the imagination. This will include creating artwork and writing inspired by the natural environment to help stakeholders envisage a future in which hydrological methods and data are open.
