Management of the Effects of Coastal Storms

A new book is published by members of the RISC-KIT Consortium

 

A brand new book has been released, resulting from the collaboration between two of RISC-KITs researchers, Paolo Ciavola of Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca, Emmanuel Garnier of Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, together with Philippe Quevauviller, Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

 

Policy, research and historical background are essential elements that need to be interconnected for effective coastal planning and management. This book discusses this framework, providing an insight into policy settings and science-policy interactions in the area of coastal risks related to storms and flooding, and integrated coastal zone management. It also provides a review of the current understanding of the processes generating extreme coastal events, the morphological evolution of coastlines during and after the events, and the methods for monitoring the process as it occurs or for post-event appraisal. Finally it discusses the importance of historical approaches regarding coastal threats, taking the Xynthia storm as an example.
