Wetland Vision: Adapting wetlands to climate change
A cross-disciplinary project involving the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the British Geological Survey, UCL, Open University and the University of Exeter. Research undertaken within the project involved the development of a novel tiered approach for assessing impacts and uncertainty of climate change on characteristics and features (hydrology, vegetation communities, birds and archaeological remains) of rain-fed, riverine and groundwater-fed wetlands. Approaches ranged from conceptual hydrological models used to simulate the full suite of UK Climate Impacts Programme UKCP09 scenarios (thousands of model runs) to case studies employing high resolution, fully distributed, physically-based hydrological / hydraulic models and a sub-set of climate projections (necessary given the much higher computational resources required). Project deliverables included an online Wetland Tool for Climate Change that provides assessments of climate change impacts for any wetland in England and Wales. An iOS based version of the Wetland Tool for smart phones and tablets was subsequently developed with funding from a NERC Impact Award to UCL and released in June 2016. Funding source: The Wetland Vision (English Heritage, Environment Agency, Natural England, RSPB and the Wildlife Trusts).
