Since 1988, major floods have occurred on several of the largest rivers in Scotland, causing damage estimated to be in excess of US$170m. These events are clearly concentrated in western catchments, which have also shown increased frequencies of small events and increases in annual runoff. A climatic cause appears most likely and may also relate to similar changes observed in western Scandinavia; further work will examine these links more closely.
