A one-day training course that looks at the prediction of extreme sea levels and wave conditions at the coastline.

Summary

The extreme sea level event in the UK in December 2013 combined with significant wave action resulted in significant levels of flooding and damage to coastal defences and properties on the east coast of England and the north coast of Wales. This event, combined with significant coastal flooding just one month later on the west coast of England demonstrated the need to understand and predict extreme coastal conditions, and the consequent risks of flooding and damage associated with them.

This course introduces the process of prediction of extreme sea levels and wave conditions at the coastline. It shows how data can be used to assess the combination of wave and sea level conditions that are likely to result in extreme levels of flooding and damage. The latest guidance on sea level rise and changes in wave conditions is incorporated.
