Large Scale Integrated Sea-level and Coastal Assessment Tool - LISCOAST

Description

LISCoAsT is a coastal flood impact assessment tool that considers the spatial and temporal dynamics of all major components contributing to a flood' severity and impact. This includes dynamic, gridded projections of exposure, and changes in all extreme sea level components, from sea level to tides and storm surges.

The main objectives of the integrated assessment tool LISCoAsT are to:

1) Develop dynamic scenarios of catastrophic coastal hazards (e.g., storm surges, sea-level rise) in view of climate change;

2) Develop scenarios of exposure and vulnerability in coastal areas;

3) Carry out a bottom-up, highly disaggregated assessment of climate impacts on coastal areas in Europe and worldwide in view of global warming.
