HR Wallingford’s specialist marine mapping and data capabilities enable the extraction of commercially relevant information from large marine data sets.
We developed a methodology for mapping national-scale fluvial flooding for SEPA that provides the fluvial flood outlines for the national flood mapping tool on their website.
As part of the The MK: Smart project, we are develop a smart water management system to improve water efficiency and support sustainable development in Milton Keynes, UK
SMARTtide is the most highly resolved 2D hydrodynamic model available to the public for tidal energy extraction modelling, site selection and feasibility level optimisation.
Dredged material is rarely used to enhance or create new mud flat or salt marsh systems. Our research looks at how this material can be put to beneficial use.
We have been working with the Environment Agency to develop a plan for managing flood risk on the Thames estuary over the next 100 years.
We investigated the hydraulic performance of the super active baffle Larinier fishpass to help understand its impact on the accuracy of flow gauging.
HR Wallingford has been working with the Port of Dover developers for 30 years, working on a wide range of projects
HR Wallingford investigated beach changes either side of Pagham Harbour and advised on appropriate and environmentally acceptable management of defences against coastal flooding and erosion.
Investigating the use of sensors within flood embankments to support online early warning systems and real time monitoring.
We have developed tools to help African leaders integrate water security and climate resilience into development planning, with a focus on prioritising no or low regrets’ investments and financing strategies.
Potential uses for data assimilation techniques in the modelling of wind, waves, currents and sediments.
We undertook highly accurate and adaptable 3D physical modelling, optimisation and overtopping testing for the development of the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Our drought simulation workshop helped Bristol Water test their draft Drought Plan, and be better prepared to manage droughts specific to their resource system.
We developed our own validated, efficient and flexible model, OIL-RW, to provide reliable prediction of oil transport and fate.
The smart documents project investigated a new range of possibilities for faster, better, smarter and more efficient ways to access and interact with data.
