Our Pacific Island Flood Maps provide undefended flood mapping for six return periods (20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,500-year) for every inhabited Pacific Island. They have been developed based on assessment of long-term rainfall records, river records, and statistical analysis to create new Intensity-Frequency-Duration datasets, and numerical modelling undertaken using Jflow.
