EuroSea developed a prototype decision-making tool for flood risk managers. To evaluate and plan for future flood risk, these stakeholders must consider the possible impacts of a range of hazards from the sea, whilst also understanding how these might change in the future. This will help to achieve an optimum level of flood protection that balances the reduced risk of inundation with the increased cost of the defences.
EuroSea developed a new streamlined approach to modelling the interactions between sea level hazards, economic activity, and risk in the Hull area, propagating more of the science through the risk assessment process. The model output has been incorporated into a bespoke desktop decision-making software tool – the Sea Level Planning and Visualisation Tool. This tool aims at informing decision making and investment planning.
