Visit to HR Wallingford, Oxford, September 2014

As part of the Reducing Regional Flood and Erosion Risk from Wave Action on the Channel Coast project, SCOPAC members and officers were given the opportunity to visit the test facility at HR Wallingford in Oxford on Friday 12th September 2014.

Delegates were taken on a tour of the facility and were able to view a physical model of Chesil Spit being tested for various bi-modal wave conditions to understand when it is most vulnerable to erosion and overwashing processes.

The results from the case studies tested as part of the project will improve coastal management decisions and flood forecasting throughout central southern England.
