Mathematical modelling of flooding

Examine the present news releases on the issue of flooding in the UK and this will tell you all about the pressing need to develop accurate and reliable predictive theories for flooding. A typical question that concerns the Environmental Agency is how can flooding be predicted in sites where there is limited data. In this case, mathematical models can be used to anticipate the chance of flooding given data on the properties of the site.

In this project, the student will investigate some well-known models for flooding, review the state-of-the-art knowledge of flood prediction, and seek to study some of the interesting problems that confront us.
