SCG/SCOPAC Conference January 2021 – SCOPAC Storm Analysis project webinar

The first Conference for the SCG and SCOPAC was held online in January 2021 and focused on sharing the outputs from the 2018-2020 SCOPAC Storm Analysis research

In response to recent extreme events and stormy winters (e.g. 2013/14 and 2015/16), BCP Council and the University of Southampton led on an analysis across the SCOPAC region, comparing extreme events and winters using sea level and wave data sets. The aim was to put recent events into context with longer data sets, providing easily accessible and understandable scientific information that can be used to infer causes of coastal flooding and/or erosion.

The conference was well attended with approximately 80 officers and members dialling into MS Teams. Our video recording of the proceedings is made available to those that attended (please sign in below). For others a slide presentation is freely available:
