Modelling enables us to provide credible estimates of how many properties are at risk from flooding, and where they are. It is the basis of our flood forecasting service.

This ‘Flood and Coastal Risk Management Modelling Strategy 2010 to 2015’ explains how we will invest in modelling to fully understand the risk of flooding from all sources and to support our partners in delivering effective flood and coastal risk management.
