The purpose of this project is to perform a screening evaluation of flood risk in Odense and to identify the (economic) potential for adaptation in a number of climate scenarios. The following steps will be performed:

·         Set up a (coarse) 1D-2D flood model for the city of Odense based on an existing 1D model of the pipe network.

·         Perform flood simulations for a variety of combinations of extreme rainfall and sea level (up to 50 events)

·         Assess economic flood damages for all events based on the methodology applied in the climate adaptation plan of the City of Odense.

As a result, we will obtain an overview of the flood damages that will occur for different magnitudes of flood hazards. Subsequently, we can use this information to compute expected damages in different climate scenarios by assigning return periods to the simulated events. In addition, we can make assumptions on different protection levels against flooding (e.g., no coastal flooding for sea levels below 1.5m) and compute the resulting reduction of flood risk. In this way, we can derive estimates for the economic potential of flood adaptation.

This project will strongly focus on modelling urban flooding in MIKE and you should thus have an interest in working with a detailed, complex model for a whole city.
