To-SEAlert project’s objective is the development, implementation and validation of a set of tools/methodologies on a WebGIS system to help authorities to monitor, prevent and/or manage wave-driven overtopping and flooding emergency events in coastal and harbor areas.

Within this project, a prototype of the system was recently implemented for the port of Ericeira, in Portugal, and is currently under validation process.

This prototype allows to estimate, 72 hours in advance, the areas where wave over-topping is likely to occur, namely on the breakwater and surrounding areas.

Taking into account the activities that occur in each area of the port and the predicted over-topping discharge, the prototype identifies the activities that can be at risk as well as the risk level associated.
