The first special edition papers are here!

Coastal Engineering published the first RISC-KIT papers online as part of the Special Edition of the journal.

 

 

Twenty three papers were delivered by RISC-KIT researchers for the special issue of the journal Coastal Engineering, a new edition dedicated exclusively to RISC-KIT outcomes and applications. Three papers have been already approved and are now available online. All the other articles have been retained for peer review and are expected to be published in autumn 2017. 

Have a look at the first articles just published!


Historical analysis of storm events: Case studies in France, England, Portugal and Italy” (E. Garnier, P. Ciavola, T. Spencer, O. Ferreira, C. Armaroli, A. McIvor)



(a) Image of the beach of St-Gilles-sur-Vie (Point de la Garenne), near La Faute-sur-Mer (Vendée) in the 1920s. The natural dunes have already been partially levelled to build villas (e.g. Villa Notre Dame in the background), while beach huts are installed for the bathers. Source: Archives départementales de Vendée, 1 Num 59 3/222-3; (b) the same spot in 2017: the area is now fully urbanized and a sea-wall was built to protect the promenade behind (Source: the Mayor of St-Gilles-sur-Vie).

 

A Bayesian network approach for coastal risk analysis and decision making” (W.S. Jäger, E.K. Christie, A.M. Hanea, C. den Heijer, T. Spencer)
