Defra’s ‘Funding for Outcome’ is leading 2013-2015
Flood Risk (loss) reduction equates in broad terms to flood peak (stage) reduction stimulating interest in the development of generic 2D hydraulic mapping of Fluvial landuse, and :-
Under continual development as iterative pilots unfold (towards generic 2D hydraulic analysis of all UK catchments), this 2013 theme builds on open-resource by open-method and commends open network forum review. IP of the domains, derived data and developed graphics (for example the connection between amenity infrastructure, flood-risk and sustainable engineering) is extended to communities and managers, and promoted always in pursuit of wellbeing and risk reduction.
- water flows downhill (more . . . stream networks)
- exceedance is primarily overground (more . . . 2D modelling)
- velocity control is critical to flood alleviation (more . . . rural field networks)
- Pro-active FRM is Flood Peak Management; re-active FRM is private (last ditch) resilience
