The Geology Section Joint Lecture: Flood Risk Management, Past Present and Future

3 April @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Professor Lynne Frostick, CBE
Emeritus Professor, Energy & Environment Institute, University of Hull

Professor Lynne Frostick,

Formerly a Professor of Physical Geography at the University, Professor Frostick CBE’s work in the aftermath of the 2007 floods in Hull played a vital role in shaping UK flood policy through the national Pitt Review. She remains an Emeritus Professor at the University of Hull’s Energy & Environment Institute today, and is committed to enhancing opportunities for women in STEM careers.

Summary: Climate change is already impacting on the rivers and coasts of our country. River flow records are exceeded on a regular basis and sea level rise is accelerating. Even if the world population agreed to stop emitting carbon dioxide today there is at least a hundred years of embedded change already in progress. This lecture will outline past and present trends in flood risk and then suggest ways society can adapt become resilient to the threat of flooding.
