This book presents a comprehensive insight into the flooding system, spanning multiple disciplines across different sectors of the flood and flood management professions. It forecasts the manner in which flooding and coastal erosion risks may increase during the 21st century due to climate Price: $ It builds upon a previous book known as the "multi-coloured manual" (), which itself was a synthesis of the blue (), red () and yellow manuals (). As such it expands and updates this work, to provide a manual of assessment techniques of flood risk management benefits, indirect benefits, and coastal erosion risk management benefits. It forecasts the manner in which flooding and coastal erosion risks may increase during the 21st century due to climate change and socio-economic development in the UK and presents an examination of the integrated measures necessary to manage.   The findings in this book demonstrate that to manage future flood and coastal erosion risks sustainably, a portfolio of integrated measures is required. As many of the measures require long lead-times to become effective, .

It forecasts the manner in which flooding and coastal erosion risks may increase during the 21st century due to climate change and socio-economic development in the UK and presents an examination of the integrated measures necessary to manage future increases in risk, through sustainable methods. Accepting the flood system as context for the discussion of coastal risk, this paper argues that coastal erosion and flooding should be analysed jointly, because although each repre- sents a stand-alone hazard, they also interact (Figure 1) as follows.

The evolution of future flood risk is sensitive to the quantity of beach sediment, from eroding cliffs or artificial beach nourishment, underlining the importance of strategic coastal management. In the Tyndall Coastal Simulator, the work constitutes a key result and builds on the paper by Dawson et al. (Proc R Soc Lond A ()– Cited by: 2.
