Future Flood Explorer (FFE)
The Future Flood Explorer allows flood risk managers to understand risk under climate and socioeconomic change, and how effective adaptation policies are in offsetting these changes. The Future Flood Explorer represents coastal, fluvial, surface water and groundwater sources of flooding, and can quantify risk to a wide range of receptors such as residential and non-residential properties, infrastructure sites, and transport links. Analysis is possible across a range of scales from national to neighbourhood. A key capability of the Future Flood Explorer is the ability to quantify the effects of adaptation strategies on risk, including defence construction, rural and urban catchment management, property level resilience measures, spatial planning and forecasting/warning. A basic introduction to the innovative Future Flood Explorer.
