Modelling NFM in lowland catchments

Thursday, July 29, 2021 - 12:30 to 13:30

This webinar will explore the application of a linked modelling approach to quantify the effectiveness of land-based NFM measures implemented across more permeable lowland catchments in the West Thames basin.  The NFM measures under particular investigation include: crop and soil management, woodland creation and leaky barrier implementation.  The linked modelling work has also evaluated how changing groundwater recharge dynamics, as a result of widespread NFM implementation, could influence the risk of groundwater flooding to vulnerable communities and river baseflow contributions.
