Climate change and geomorphological dynamics of the Breton coasts. Lessons for responsible management of the intertwining of spatial and temporal scales
In France, the strong storms of recent decades and their impact on coastlines have led to the emphasis being placed on the causal links that may exist between climate change and the current trends in the coastlines subject to erosion and submersion. However, it seems necessary to put into perspectiv...
Determination of the hazard Flood risk in the Wateringual sector
The DREAL Nord Pas de Calais launched a study in 2009 to seek to deepen the understanding of the flood risk levels in the Wateringual sector, with the combined effect of concomitant meteorological, climatic and technological factors: flooding in the hill basins, the AA and Hem rivers, prolonged rain...
300 years of coastal salinization research in Germany – the Homann (1718) map of the Christmas Flood of 1717
The Christmas Flood of 1717 was one of the most destructive storm floods in the North Sea region and affected large parts of the shores of Germany, the Netherlands and Germany (e.g. Jakubowski-Tiessen 1992). It occurred in the night from the 24th to the 25th of December 1717, when a strong northwest...
Water, wind, ice and sea
Late Pleistocene climates in the upper Nile Basin fluctuated between cold and dry, and warm and wet. During 75-15 ka the climate in this region was mostly dry, with moist phases at 55-50 ka and 38-30 ka. In the upper Atbara 36Cl exposure ages for glacial moraines range from 70 to 15 ka, after which...
Correlating the end-Triassic mass extinction and flood basalt volcanism at the 100 ka level
New high-precision U/Pb geochronology from volcanic ashes shows that the Triassic-Jurassic boundary and end-Triassic biological crisis from two independent marine stratigraphic sections correlate with the onset of terrestrial flood volcanism in the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province to <150 ka. T...
Flood risk in the western Mediterranean
It is known that land in the western Mediterranean has one of the highest degrees of risk in Europe as a whole. The fact remains that human adaptation to the dangers of nature historically, which has shaped landscapes and culture in this field. Floods feature prominently among these hazards. This mo...
L'espace littoral marocain entre pressions du présent et exigences de l'avenir, cas du littoral d'Essaouira (Maroc)
The coast Moroccan between pressures of the present and future requirements, Essaouira coastal case (Morocco). The coastal area, is undergoing profound changes, Essaouira, like a large part of the Moroccan coast, is becoming a preferred destination for national and international investors. Under th...
Distribution of coastal high water level during extreme events around the UK and Irish coasts
<p>The interaction between waves, surges, and astronomical tides can lead to high coastal total water level (TWL), which can in turn trigger coastal flooding. Here, a high-resolution (1.5 km) simulation from a UK-focused regional coupled environmental prediction system is used to investigate the ext...
The Impact of Rising Sea Levels on Historical Sites Old City Semarang
The phenomenon of climate change causes cities in coastal areas to be threatened by rising sea levels. Semarang is one of the coastal cities in Indonesia which is threatened by sea level rise. One of the consequences is tidal flooding in coastal areas of Semarang. Semarang as an old city has a cultu...
Developing impact-based thresholds for coastal inundation from tide gauge observations
This study presents the first assessment of the observed frequency of the impacts of high sea levels at locations along Australia’s northern coastline. We used a new methodology to systematically define impact-based thresholds for coastal tide gauges, utilising reports of coastal inundation from div...
Relationships between pacific and atlantic ocean sea surface temperatures and water levels from satellite altimetry data in the Amazon rivers
ABSTRACT The influence of SST (Sea Surface Temperature) of adjacent oceans on the variability of water levels in the Amazon basin was investigated by using radar altimetry from the ENVISAT and Jason-2 missions. Data from the in situ network was used to compare the correlations of water level and SS...
How Eco is Eco-Tourism? A Systematic Assessment of Resorts on the Red Sea, Egypt
Eco-tourism is a growing part of the tourism industry. However, there are no agreed-upon criteria of what constitutes eco-tourism, so the industry is currently self-identified, with eco-lodges simply declaring themselves so. Here we present the first systematic comparison of eco-tourism versus conve...
Scenarios of vulnerability due to rising sea levels on the Mexican coast of the Gulf of Mexico and the MarCaribbean
Through the geomorphological characterisation of the coastline, areas vulnerable to sea level variations are identified. On the basis of this zoning, the areas of flood impact on sea levels at 1 m and 2 m were estimated. This resulted in the mapping of the impact phenomenon, using digital land model...
CREATING THE SAMPLE FLOOD RISK MODEL AND FLOOD RISK ANALYSIS OF RIVERS IN UNYE
As in many other countries of the world, the flood incidents which have been increasing in our country especially in the last 15-20 years cause loss of both life and property. In recent years, natural disasters, whose effects are more felt, are the physical factors such as climate, geomorphological...
Applying Uncertain Science to Nature-Based Coastal Protection: Lessons From Shallow Wetland-Dominated Shores
Climate change and associated sea-level rise alongside the potential for alterations in the magnitude and frequency of extreme storm events, rapidly rising coastal populations, and a legacy of coastal land reclamation are forcing the need for sustainable coastal protection on shallow, wetland-domina...
Coastal flood risk: improving operational response, a case study on the municipality of Leucate, Languedoc, France
Abstract Background Climate change and rising sea level will certainly lead to significant changes in the management of low-lying coastal areas in the coming decades. While the most recent studies in the field of coastal storms-related flooding are increasingly integrated, simultaneously addressing...
The simultaneous occurrence of surge and discharge extremes for the Rhine delta
The low-lying Netherlands is at risk from multiple threats of sea level rise, storm surges and extreme river discharges. Should these occur simultaneously, a catastrophe will be at hand. Knowledge about the likelihood of simultaneous occurrence or the so-called "compound effect" of such threats is e...
Hydroclimate variability in the low-elevation Atacama Desert over the last 2500 yr
Paleoclimate reconstructions reveal that Earth system has experienced sub-millennial scale climate changes over the past two millennia in response to internal/external forcing. Although sub-millennial hydroclimate fluctuations have been detected in the central Andes during this interval, the timing,...
A joint probability approach using a 1-D hydrodynamic model for estimating high water level frequencies in the Lower Rhine Delta
The Lower Rhine Delta, a transitional area between the River Rhine and Meuse and the North Sea, is at risk of flooding induced by infrequent events of a storm surge or upstream flooding, or by more infrequent events of a combination of both. A joint probability analysis of the astronomical tide, the...
