Extreme Wave Energy Flux

In this study we analyzed the global future trends in extreme wave energy flux along coastlines under a scenario of high emission of greenhouse gases. By the end of the century, results show a significant increase up to 30% in the wave power of the one-every-1...

Extreme Sea level - Historical

The Extreme Sea Level (ESL) dataset presents the distribution of the total water level (TWL) design conditions at the European coastline. The TWL is estimated from the dynamical simulation of the major hydrodynamic sea level components (being the mean sea leve...

Global long-term shoreline evolution

In this study we present the evolution of the global shoreline from 1984 to 2015 based on satellite observations. During this period, the eroded surface is estimated up to 28,0000 km2 which is twice the amount of accreted land. This study highlights the impact...

Global Extreme Sea Level projections

In this study we present probabilistic projections of Extreme Sea Levels (ESL) until the end of the 21st century along the global coastline, by considering the contribution of mean sea level, tides, waves and storm surges. Between the year 2000 and 2100 we pro...

Compound flood potential in Europe

In this study we investigate the probability of joint occurrence of storm surges, precipitation, river discharges and waves. A coincidence of those factors have a potential to cause compound floods. We use several pan-European datasets (observational and model...

European Coastal Flood Risk

In this study we present the results of the coastal flood risk assessment for Europe until the end of the 21st century, by incorporating the impacts of global warming and the different socio-economic development scenarios. The effect of climate change at the e...
