STORM IMPACT INDICATORS

Characteristics points of the profile which are used for defining the degree of hazard for each Storm Impact Indicators.

Coastal safety: Beach flooding 

no data
-
no hazard
max run up 0 - 25 % beach width
low level
max run up 25 - 50 % beach width
medium level
max run up 50 - 75 % beach width
source: http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/
high level
max run up 75 - 100 % beach width

Intervention Procedure

Evaluation Procedure

Guarantee a  minimum threat to people using the beach and  infrastructure located on the beach

Minimize threat to human health and  life and minimize damage of infrastructure

Space time maps with the position of the max wave run up

no hazard:
max run up 0-25% beach width
low level:
max run up 25-50% beach width
medium level:
max run up 50-75% beach width
high level:
max run up 75-100% beach width

Model results for the position /extent of wet  points

Inform Maritime Office and local community about extent of flooding the beach


Take out moveable parts of infrastructure by owners and MO member

Inspection of damage  by MO inspector

Costal Safety: Dune erosion

no data
-
no hazard
max run up < beach width
low level
dune base < max run up < 50 % height of the lowest dune crest point elevation
medium level
50 % height of the lowest dune crest point elevation
< max run up < the lowest dune crest point elevation
source: http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/
high level
dune crest erosion in the lowest point elevation

Procedure

Provide safe conditions for residents and property situated behind of the dunes and infrastructure of paths

Minimize threat of human lives and damage of property and infrastructure of paths

Maps of the areas at risk of erosion

no hazard:
max run up < beach width
low level:
dune base < max run up
< 50% height of the lowest dune crest point elevation
medium level:
50% height of the lowest dune crest point elevation < max run up < the lowest dune crest point elevation
high level:
dune crest erosion in the lowest point elevation

Model results for the dune erosion

Inform Maritime Office and local community about possibility of dune erosion


Closure of access to the beach

After the storm inspection due to estimate accuracy of model predict

Coastal Safety:  Dune overwash / breaking

no data
-
no hazard
max run up < height of the lowest dune crest point elevation
low level
waves reaching height of the lowest dune crest point elevation
medium level
dune crest erosion, overwash
source: http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/
high level
dune crest erosion, breaking
