Parker, D.J., 1987: Flood warning dissemination: The British experience. Flood Hazard Management, J. Handmer, Ed., Geo Books, 169-190.

The author considers the institutional limitations to flood warning dissemination. Through the use of document analysis and interviews with authorities, weaknesses in the flood warning dissemination system are identified. Nine recommendations to improve the system are provided based on warning system models, centering on the role of forecasters and police, experience, publicity, message content, feedback and evaluation.
