Beware: floods ahead!

Be aware floods ahead

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

Floods are becoming more likely as the climate warms - as we've seen in recent years, from Somerset or Whaley Bridge to Pakistan and Mozambique. Forecasting floods is tricky but has improved thanks to research and improved prediction by meteorologists and hydrologists. Flood defences and the choices we make about where to build houses can help reduce the impact of floods. Join scientists from the University of Reading to try your hand at flood prediction and managing the risk that it may flood, and to discuss our interactive climate stripes – a graphic representation of how the world is warming.
