PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The exact causes of river flood changes are still a mystery. Although, drivers such as climate and land use change are known to play a critical role, their complex interactions have not been disentangled. We will separately analyse floods in catchments where climate variability is large and land use changes are small, and where the opposite is the case, and will account for the dominant mechanisms of change in flood modelling. The impact of this will be to enable isolation of individual factors contributing to changes in floods for a given flood process type, and make the change mechanisms transparent.
