The holistic approach to application of physical geographical knowledge in municipal storm
surge planning in the light of climate change is researched through a case study of Jyllinge Nordmark in the Municipality of Roskilde. Through document analysis of local plans, pilot projects, and newspaper articles, along with interviews and map analysis, it is studied how an extreme weather event like the storm “Bodil” of December 2013 has caused a shift in the utilization of physical geographical knowledge in development and planning of the flood protection project in Jyllinge Nordmark. Furthermore, it is examined how “Bodil” marks a turning point, after which a change has been made to the municipality's organizational structure and planning process of the Municipality of Roskilde. It is found that physical geographical knowledge existed but was not taken into account during the early development of Jyllinge Nordmark. Only after “Bodil”, the acknowledgement of the importance of physical geographical knowledge was recognized, which prompted a massive generation of knowledge. Furthermore, after “Bodil” the Municipality of Roskilde underwent significant organizational restructuring and produced a new, compressed time plan with parallel plan processes.
