Hazard and resilience modelling

Subsidence affecting house in Edinburgh

The hazard and resilience modelling team develops new and innovative data products to provide geoscientific information to our stakeholders served up in a format that is accessible and intuitive. Combining expertise from engineering geology, geochemistry, modelling, GIS and many more disciplines, the team aims to:

  • supply data and knowledge to users that can be used in the analysis of a range of geo-environmental problems
  • explore alternative and new methodologies with internal and external partners, developing on pre-existing products and services as well as generating new and innovative ones
  • develop multidisciplinary data products
  • develop dynamic products (i.e temporal or responsive) modelling factors such as impact, resilience, risk and uncertainty using numerical and stochastic techniques, improving the quality and integrity of products and services
  • develop new and innovative methods of data presentation, particularly looking at how to incorporate near real-time data, dynamic process models and 3D geological models and data
