Abstract/Summary

This is the data compilation report for project C03387 on providing a scientific data set upon which to validate urban flood modeling updates to ReFH. In order to validate ReFH modeling of urban catchments it is required that hourly resolution datasets on both rainfall and river flow are available for a number of catchments that are subject to urbanisation. To meet this requirement a data acquisition programme has been undertaken to provide the core data from which a database of catchment hourly flow and rainfall data has been created. This report details the establishment of such data for 29 catchments selected for their urban characteristics.
