PURE (Probability, Uncertainty and Risk in the Environment) is a new Knowledge Exchange Network and Research Programme. Its aim is to be the leading national network bringing together researchers, industrialists, and policy-makers in uncertainty and risk for natural hazards, through collaborative working, knowledge exchange, and the development of best practice. It will help to shape the direction of future research and provide valuable information to practitioners in environmental risk management.
Running alongside, as a sub-group of, the main PURE research activities is a web portal, or 'Experimental Zone', designed by the British Geological Survey to facilitate the sharing and fusion of models and data from a variety of different sources. To find out more about this sub-group and how to join, please visit the PURE Portal and Experimental Zone pages.
In July 2012, the NERC announced that £4m has been awarded for the PURE Programme. The PURE Programme is managed by two consortia of academic institutions and industrial partners, who will undertake PURE-related studies of priority hazards, including modelling of floods, windstorms, earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, lahars, and volcanic ash dispersal.
