Impact of barrages on extreme water levels in the Bristol Channel

Abstract:

The Bristol Channel/Severn Estuary has some of the largest tides in the world with a mean spring tidal range of 12.2 m. On rare occasions, a significant storm surge will coincide with a spring tide and this has potential for very major coastal flooding given the large amount of low-lying land surrounding the estuary and the high population. Due to the high tidal range, numerous proposals have been made to exploit the Severn Estuary for energy extraction. Developing tidal power as a renewab...
