University of Bristol (UniBristol): Partner 15

University of BristolThe University of Bristol is a research-based university of international standing. It was founded in 1876 as University College, Bristol. It was the first higher education institution in England to admit women on a basis of equality with men. It received its Royal Charter in 1909. It organises its academic affairs in some 60 departments and 15 research centres which are arranged in six Faculties.

Interest in flood risk analysis spans the Departments of Civil Engineering, Geographical Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering Mathematics. Key expertise exists in: (1) Flood Risk Management and other aspects of risk and uncertainty. Probabilistic and non-standard (fuzzy and random set based) methods for uncertainty handling; (2) Reliability analysis of flood defence systems and risk-based asset management; (3) Extreme value and multi-variate probability statistics; (4) Flood inundation modelling: development partner of the TELEMAC code with Electicite de France; developers of inundation modelling software for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Halcrow and HR Wallingford in the UK; (5) Real-Time Flood Forecasting: development and operation of real-time flood forecasting systems – contribution to operational systems for the UK Environment Agency. Partners in the European Flood Forecasting project; (6) Radar Hydrology: expertise includes the assessment of radar quality data; adjustment techniques; quantitative forecasting methods and incorporation of precipitation forecasts in hydrological models; (7) Hydroinformatics: knowledge-based decision support systems; machine learning; application of distributed object technology to flood forecasting and warning systems; computer aided learning software for water management.
