Lower Severn Community Flood Education Network channel

The Severn has the second highest tidal range in the world and hence has a spectacular bore around the equinoxes. The character of the bore changes as it funnels up the estuary. This short video clip shows aerial footage of the Severn bore as it moves up the estuary to Gloucester. It was edited from an extended video donated to the Royal Society-funded COPUS Lower Severn Community Flood Information Network project (run by University of Gloucestershire 2004-2006) by Richard Bailey. HND Multimedia students at the students at the University of Gloucestershire carried out the edits as part of a larger project on web design around Severn Flood Histories.

Video originally used as part of the 'Lower Severn Community Flood Information Network' project led by the University of Gloucestershire (.glos.ac.uk/severnfloods/). This project has been updated by this Lower Severn Community Flood Education Network project (insight.glos.ac.uk/tli/activities/co-fast/severnfloods/Pages/default.aspx)
