Quantifying Residual Uncertainty in modelling

In this webinar, Adam Parkes, Associate Director - Hydrology at Jacobs discusses how hydraulic models are an essential tool when developing flood management schemes, informing many key aspects of design.

No matter how much work is undertaken, however many simulations run, there will always remain inherent uncertainties in results. Understanding this uncertainty is important to ensure flood defences perform as needed during a flood, giving confidence to operators and the community.
