  • This dataset is a set of 24 gridded netcdf files, each including data describing a total of 14,400 widespread flooding events across mainland GB, with event selection based on a peaks-over-threshold approach. The data describes peak river flow in m3/s and the associated annual probability of exceedance for each 1km grid-square on the GB river network. The data is extracted from daily time series data from the Grid-to-Grid model, using UKCP18 12km regional projections from 12 members of a perturbed parameter ensemble, over the periods Dec 1980 – Nov 2010 and Dec 2050 – Nov 2080 (based on 360-day years). Multi-day events were summarised by taking cell-wise flow maxima. This data was generated for use in analysis of risk through catastrophe modelling using the Future Flows Explorer. It was generated and interpreted by UKCEH, working with Sayers & Partners Consultancy, as part of the AquaCAT project, part of the UK Climate Resilience Programme.

  • This is a set of six ASCII grids describing the peak flood event for six return periods (2-100 years) at each point of the river network in the state of Kerala, India. Estimates were derived in a similar way to the Flood Estimation Handbook* approach. The data is measured in cubic metres per second, and is given on an unprojected resolution of 15 arc-seconds per grid cell. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of the LAWIS programme delivering National Capability. * (Flood Estimation Handbook.
