The sequence of Atlantic storms experienced by the UK during the winter of 2013/14 was very unusual. They led to widespread flooding on the west and southern coastlines of the UK and caused damage to the mainline railway between Plymouth and London.

Abstract: The sequence of Atlantic storms experienced by the UK during the winter of 2013/14 was very unusual. They led to widespread flooding on the west and southern coastlines of the UK and caused damage to the mainline railway between Plymouth and London. In this paper, an investigation of the severity of the impacts of the storms is presented, based on reports and new computational modelling. The resulting hypothesis is that the extensive flooding and damage were due to an unusually high percentage of swell waves. The current overtopping design formulae are not best suited to bimodal seas and new research is required to provide better design guidance for such cases.
