Uncertainties in Tidally Adjusted Estimates of Sea Level Rise Flooding (Bathtub Model) for the Greater London

Ali Yunus, Ram Avtar, Steven Kraines, Masumi Yamamuro, Fredrik Lindberg, C. Grimmond
2016 Remote Sensing  
Sea-level rise (SLR) from global warming may have severe consequences for coastal cities, particularly when combined with predicted increases in the strength of tidal surges.  ...  This analysis provides a broad-scale estimate of the potential consequences of SLR and uncertainties in the DEM-based bathtub type flood inundation modelling for London boroughs. conduct vulnerability  ...  The authors would like to express sincere thanks to Japan Society of Promotion of Science, and Belmont Forum (NERC TRUC) for their kind support.  ...

2015 NHESSD  
This misses the opportunity to learn about the role of key drivers of historical changes in flood risk, such as development and population rise in the coastal flood plain and sea-level rise.  ...  The analysis shows that flood exposure changes as a result of increases in population, changes in coastal population density and sea level rise.  ...  Thanks is extended to the University of Edinburgh's Digimap ® team for their extensive work digitising census data which made this study possible.
