    Has the research got to be British-based? or are you thinking of fieldwork abroad?

    If it's going to be GB based, then examining peoples perceptions of flooding compared with the new Environment Agency calculation of their flood risk might be interesting... you could do this for a confined region (eg Southern Britain) if your funds are limited or extend it to different areas of Britain if not.

    Dissertations sound fun! I know someone at Soton who did something to do with flooding and Boscastle, there's plenty of resources on that!
