Provides a view of current and future flood hazards (fluvial, pluvial and tidal) for three return periods, three epochs and three emissions scenarios to estimate potential impact on asset portfolio and satisfy ESG disclosure requirements.
FloodMap Climate is a high-resolution, climate adjusted flood map using local hydrological data, high-resolution terrain models, and climate uplift data to create a view of current and future hazards (fluvial, pluvial and tidal). FloodMap Climate replaces the previous FloodFutures product (which is no longer updated).
The impact of global warming and rising sea levels is intensifying, and every one of us will need to adapt and plan in the face of uncertainty. The UK is witnessing higher temperatures and changing rainfall patterns with unprecedented combinations of drought and flood conditions caused by more intense storms . The frequency of such extreme weather events and the probability of them coinciding is increasing, resulting in an intensification of severe consequences.
If you are working on a project or your organisation needs a long term view of flooding hazards to protect property and infrastructure assets or satisfy ESG disclosure requirements, then FloodMap Climate can help.
1-in-30 years, 1-in-100 years and 1-in-500 years return periods, undefended.
Climate Epochs & Emissions Scenarios
2020’s, 2050’s and 2080’s
RCP2.6, RCP4.5 and RCP8.5
- Fluvial (river) flooding
- Pluvial flooding (surface water, flash flooding)
- Tidal flooding (sea, estuary and coastal)
- Sea-level rise (shows low and high tide lines)
- Sea-level rise inundation areas – zones that are subject to inundation due to sea-level rise rather than as a result of a specific flood event
- River-bank and bed erosion potential for each 100-metre river segment’
