EW-Coast - Early warning system for coastal risks induced by storms

The main goal of the EW-COast project is to develop, test, and prove the concept of an operational early warning system (EWS) for coastal overtopping, flooding and erosion for sandy and armoured coasts, using a Bayesian network. The EWS will be applied to 3 coastal hotspots on the Portuguese coasts, to assess damages and risks associated to each site.

EW-Coast is coordinated by UAlg in partnership with LNEC. In addition, and essential to ensure the project success and the future implementation, end-users will be involved.

Project with reference ALG-LISBOA-01-145-FEDER-028657 awarded by FCT, IP, supported by the Algarve Regional Operational Program and the Lisbon Regional Operational Program in its FEDER component and the Foundation for Science and Technology in its OE component.
