Reducing uncertainty in river flood conveyance (CES)

UK research initiative to develop an improved decision-support system for conveyance estimation to calculate the flow depth slope relationship in river channel and flood plain systems.



The project to produce the new Conveyance Estimation System (CES) was carried out from early 2001 to mid 2004. It has been closely co-ordintaed with a parallel project aimed at improved estimation of afflux at bridges and culverts.
