Climate Change Consortium for Wales (C3W)

Flood Map, Rhyl, North Wales

The Climate Change Consortium of Wales (C3W) brings together researchers from four of the largest Welsh universities (Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea). This project is funded by HEFCW from 01/10/2009 to 31/03/2014.

C3W seeks to improve understanding of the causes, nature, timing and consequences of climate change. Along with research into perceptions of climate change and potential adaptation and mitigation responses, C3W aims to improve understanding and inform decision-making by Government, policymakers, businesses and the education sector.

The particular Work Package HRC is involved to use FVCOM to model the flood risk along the Welsh coasts under the different sea level rise scenarios and storm surge. The flood map shown at Rhyl is the under 1 m SLR.
