    What are the key outputs of CFB 2018?


    The following were updated or added to the dataset in 2018:

    • ESLs of annual exceedance probability ranging from 1-year to 10,000-year return period
    • highest astronomical tide and mean high water spring tide conditions for some locations
    • ESLs for the full study area coastline at a spacing of about 2km along the open coast or less in estuaries and harbours (enabling rapid selection of appropriate levels without any need for further interpolation)
    • advice on generating appropriate total storm tide curves for use with the extreme sea levels
    • extension of the dataset in several key estuaries

    The following were not updated in 2018:

    • extreme swell wave conditions were supplied for CFB 2011 but were not updated for CFB 2018
