The main aim of this work is to address the impact of storms on the coast from the coastal manager’s standpoint, i.e., how to use all the scientific knowledge about coastal storms presented in the different chapters of the current book in a practical way. Thus, the aim is to help managers make decisions on the design of DRR measures, and also to allocate resources for such purposes. To this end, this work presents two different and complementary ways to anticipate the impact of coastal storms. The first one consists of a Coastal Vulnerability Assessment Framework to be applied at a regional scale (~100 km), whereas the second one consists of an Early Warning System to be applied locally (1 km). In both cases, the main aspects to be considered are presented in detail and are illustrated with real cases.

Abstract

The main aim of this work is to address the impact of storms on the coast from the coastal manager’s standpoint, i.e., how to use all the scientific knowledge about coastal storms presented in the different chapters of the current book in a practical way. Thus, the aim is to help managers make decisions on the design of DRR measures, and also to allocate resources for such purposes. To this end, this work presents two different and complementary ways to anticipate the impact of coastal storms. The first one consists of a Coastal Vulnerability Assessment Framework to be applied at a regional scale (~100 km), whereas the second one consists of an Early Warning System to be applied locally (1 km). In both cases, the main aspects to be considered are presented in detail and are illustrated with real cases.
