Coastal Hazard Forecasting

A forecasting tool benefitting those managing coastal hazards in the South West of England, and beyond. 

Since 2018, SWEEP-OWWL forecasts have been increasing the accuracy and confidence with which to predict wave, water levels and coastal flooding, enabling a more rapid, targeted and cost-effective response to the risks this poses to property, business, transportation and life. 

There are 10 case studies that can be explored on the map below, which highlight the breadth of impact being delivered by OWWL, particularly during the Storm Eunice (Feb 2022) and Hurricane Epsilon (Oct 2020) events.
