A evening webinar exploring a new water cycle and the impact it has on the recurrence of floods and droughts. In particular, understanding the .. Read more behaviour of streamflow and groundwater resources is critical in estimating the risk associated with these hydrological extremes. Here, we will discuss new evidence for a multi-year cycle exhibited by the majority of UK water resources that, until recently, was hidden. This cycle can account for up to 30% of river flow behaviour and up to 40% groundwater level behaviour, with impacts on the recurrence of flooding and droughts. We will review the nature and implications of this cycle in the UK and discuss its origin. Will is a Senior Hydrologist with Atkins and has 10 years’ experience leading projects in flood risk alleviation and water resource management.
