Quantifying residual uncertainty in modelling

Understanding this uncertainty is important to ensure flood defences perform as needed during a flood, giving confidence to operators and the community.

In this webinar, Adam Parkes, Head of Discipline for Hydrology at Jacobs, will provide an overview of the UK guidance on quantifying residual uncertainty in modelling. He will use case studies to demonstrate how the guidance can be applied, discuss its impact on scheme design and appraisal, areas of potential improvement and the challenges this presents to the industry.

Developed by Jacobs, for nearly 50 years, Flood Modeller has become the #1 flood modelling solution. Independently benchmarked by the Environment Agency and many other organisations, it is trusted by government agencies, utilities, insurers and consultants across the globe.

We have helped thousands of users, in over 150 countries, transform how they undertake modelling and how they share and communicate flood-related information with clients and members of the public.

Flood Modeller’s industry-leading solvers allow you to seamlessly model rivers, surface water and urban drainage systems to obtain a detailed and fully integrated understanding of flood risk. It's powerful user interface and wide range of productivity tools enable you to build and run models quicker and more intuitively than ever before.

It is also the approved national flood forecasting tool for government bodies in six countries, including in the UK, where there are currently over 500 operational hydraulic models used by the Environment Agency (England), Natural Resources Wales and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.
