  • This dataset contains river (fluvial) and surface water (pluvial) flooding maps for the central highlands of Vietnam and surrounding provinces. Flood depth is estimated at 30m horizontal grid spacing for 10 return periods, ranging from the 1 in 5 year to the 1 in 1000 year return period flood. These maps are of relevance to planners and policy makers to estimate which areas of most at risk of flooding and can contribute towards policy such as the sustainable development goals.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until March 1, 2023]. This dataset contains fluvial flood maps of the present day 1 in 20 year return period, and corresponding flood extents for 3 SSP (Shared Socioeconomic Pathway)/RCP(Representative Concentration Pathway) scenarios for the future (2070-2100). Change in flood return periods are estimated using CMIP6 projections and subsequently used to extract flood maps from a global flood model.

  • The dataset contains 1km gridded estimates of hourly rainfall for Great Britain for the period 1990-2016. The estimates are derived by applying the nearest neighbour interpolation method to a national database of hourly raingauge observations collated by Newcastle University and the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH). These interpolated hourly estimates were then used to temporally disaggregate the CEH-GEAR daily rainfall dataset. The estimated rainfall on a given hour refers to the rainfall amount accumulated in the previous hour. The dataset also contains data indicating the distance between the grid point and the closest recording raingauge used in its interpolation. When this distance is greater than 50km, or there is zero rainfall recorded in the closest gauge, the daily value is disaggregated using a design storm. The dataset therefore also contains a flag indicating if the design storm was used. These data are provided as an indicator of the quality of the estimates.
