1D/2D flood modelling

29 March 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Calibration of flood inundation extents produced by flood models has been limited by the difficulty in collecting post-event flood data. Traditionally post-event data has been limited to observed flood levels at a few locations, or spatial mapping of flood extents based on trash marks left after a flood has receded.

With the advent of smart phones, social media and a populace better-informed regarding flooding, much more data can now be made available.

This talk describes the calibration of two linked 1D/2D models using data obtained during the winter 2015/2016 floods in Dumfries and Galloway. It describes the available data and how the data was used to improve model predictions, with a discussion on the calibration and uncertainties in 2D flood modelling.
