FLOOD Memory (Multi-Event Modelling Of Risk & recoverY): It is increasingly recognised that the spatial and temporal dimensions of flood events needs to be better understood. This EPSRC funded large multidisciplinary research project aims to analyse situations where consecutive storms and floods may strike before defences or people have recovered (the ‘memory period’). The outcomes will be to identify critical vulnerabilities, better allocate resources for protection and recovery and improve flood resilience. At Southampton we are firstly conducting a UK wide case study of storm surge and sea level clustering, and collaborating with researchers at Swansea University on a more detailed case study at Sefton.
