Another New Book!
Coastal Storms: Processes and Impacts
RISC-KIT is really proving to be a force to be reckoned with as another new book is published with a significant RISC-KIT contribution. Paolo Ciavola, Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca, is once again at the helm as one of the Editors of this new publication entitled “Coastal Storms”.
Coastal Storms offers students and professionals in the field a comprehensive overview and groundbreaking text that is specifically devoted to the analysis of coastal storms. Based on the most recent knowledge and contributions from leading researchers, the text examines coastal storms’ processes and characteristics, the main hazards (such as overwash, inundation and flooding, erosion, structures overtopping), and how to monitor and model storms. The authors include information on the most advanced innovations in forecasting, prediction, and early warning, which serves as a foundation for accurate risk evaluation and developing adequate coastal indicators and management options.
Coastal Storms is a compilation of scientific and policy-related knowledge related to climate-related extreme events. The authors are internationally recognized experts and their work reflects the most recent science and policy advances in the field.
