Impact of Climate Change on Extreme Flood Events
In collaboration with Massey University, and Landcare New Zealand (e.g. Fuller, Macklin et al. (2019) Global and Planetary Change, 181, 102981,) funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (New Zealand), and the UK Environment Agency and JBA Consulting [e.g. Longfield S A, Faulkner D, Kjeldsen T R, Macklin M G et al. (2019) Journal of Flood Risk Management, 12(1), e12449, 2019] funded by the Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health, multi-centennial length flood records are being reconstructed from floodplain sedimentary archives. These are being used to improve flood risk assessment and to better understand the relationship between extreme flood events and the North Atlantic Oscillation (UK) and El Niño Southern Oscillation (NZ).
