Innovative components

River flooding is a major safety concern. Sophisticated models are used to design ways to decrease flood risk but it is computationally demanding to calculate how uncertain these model predictions are. Using a new approach, we have now quantified the uncertainty of twelve interventions along the River Waal. Results show significant, but not problematically high uncertainty. We demonstrate that the choice between interventions can be different when uncertainty is taken into account.
