This paper presents an integrated "Cloud-to-Coast" ensemble modelling framework of coastal flood risk due to wave overtopping and scour. It consists of three key components: meteorological forecasts, tide-surge-wave predictions and surf zone models. Using this integrated modelling approach, the flood risk in coastal areas from the extreme events can be accurately predicted and the associated uncertainties are assessed by creating ensembles of possible future storm events.
