Climate Change & Flood Management

Dr Evin Mc Govern (Marine Institute), Dr Alan Gilmer andDr Noreen Layden. Geographical Information System (GIS) based simulation of the relationship between flooding and catchment eco-morphology in Ireland.

This project investigates coastal zone flooding based on mapping functional vegetation dynamics and substrate and eco-morphology using a combination of Linear Spectral Mixture Analysis, and Maximum Likelihood Classification. Project outcomes will inform targeted land management actions that mitigate against flood risks and maintain biodiversity and ecological functions.
