A New RISC-KIT-related article is published in the journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences

Entitled, "Evaluation of coastal vulnerability to flooding: comparison of two different methodologies adopted by the Emilia-Romagna region (Italy)," the article is the result of a collaboration between a RISC-KIT End User and RISC-KIT researchers.

 

A new RISC-KIT-related artlicle, entitled, "Evaluation of coastal vulnerability to flooding: comparison of two different methodologies adopted by the Emilia-Romagna region (Italy)," has been published in the journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, outlining approaches for evaluating coastal vulnerability in the framework of the EU Floods Directive. The publication was a collaboration between RISC-KIT End Users from the Geological, Seismic and Soil Service (SGSS) of the Emilia-Romagna Region, Italy, and RISC-KIT researchers at the Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca (CFR), based at the University of Ferrara, Italy.

 

By recreating storm scenarios for a series of time scales, the authors evaluated the vulnerability of the coast when exposed to concurrent threats from storms, high surges and spring tide high-water levels. By evaluating the effects on different typographical shore profiles, the team succeeded in producing hazard and risk maps for coastal floods in the Emilia-Romagna region of the Italian Adriatic coast.

 

The authors compared two different methods for evaluating storm risk and vulnerability, providing critical strategic information that could be used in the future to design effective integrated strategies and to improve future coastal planning in this region and elsewhere.
