Storm Risk Mitigation is a NERC funded research programme which aims to improve short and longer term forecasting of storms and their impacts on catchments and coasts. The programme has three interconnected projects.
Storms have had an increasing social and economic cost over recent years and are likely to be a main cause of loss of life or assets in the UK over the next few decades. The negative societal impacts caused by adverse weather are disproportionately influenced by extremes. Furthermore, with climate change, the costs associated with storm impacts are likely to increase.
