Winter wave heights and extreme storms on the rise in Western Europe
Average winter wave heights along the Atlantic coast of Western Europe have been rising for almost seven decades, according to new research by the National Centre for Scientific Research in France, the University of Bordeaux and the University of Plymouth
University wave model to enable preparation for storm events in the South West
Scientists at the University of Plymouth have set up the Operational Wave and Water Level (OWWL) model to provide detailed forecasts of wave and water levels that will aid in the management of coastal flooding and other coastal hazards
Impacts of extreme storms
Plymouth University has been awarded two prestigious NERC Urgency grants in recognition of the seriousness of the physical and socio-economic impact of these extreme events to the UK.
