The CREW project “Surface water flood forecasting for urban communities” aims to assist SEPA in increasing its surface water flood forecasting capabilities. Two detailed review reports have been produced. The first report (Golding et al., 2013) reviews recent advances in rainfall estimation and forecasting techniques with a view to identifying the best rainfall data for surface water flood forecasting. The second report (Ghimire et al., 2013) reviews current surface water flood modelling techniques commonly used in the UK with a focus on their potential application for real-time forecasting in urban communities. These reviews are informing the next stage of the project which aims to run a real-time pilot system for surface water flood forecasting during the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014.
