PURE is an action prioritised by Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) in order to increase the impact of NERC Natural hazard research and take a national leadership role in changing the way in which uncertainty and risk are assessed and quantified across the natural hazards community.

Running alongside the main PURE research activities is the development of a web portal designed to facilitate the sharing and fusion of models and data from a variety of different sources. The portal has been developed by the British Geological Survey and is for use by the whole user community. To become part of the user community join the PURE network.
