From hosepipe bans to floods: a free talk at Wallingford Corn Exchange on Tuesday 8th January at 8 pm will try and make sense of the year's water headlines.

Much of England began 2012 in a drought, facing a summer of water shortages. So what happened to the drought? In the event, summer 2012 was one of the wettest on record and brought major flooding.

Jamie Hannaford will give an overview of the drought and the summer flooding, and the impacts of these events. He will provide a historical context, by comparing the events of the last few years to previous droughts and floods. The talk will also address the obvious pressing question - is this a sign of things to come, owing to climate change?

Jamie is the head of the UK National River Flow Archive, based at the Centre for
Ecology and Hydrology in Crowmarsh Gifford. His talk will be one of a series organised by Wallingford Science Exchange. There is no charge, but you are advised to arrive early to be sure of a seat.
