iOLE Project – Coastal Flood Hazard Maps
In the framework of the iOLE project (www.iole.ihcantabria.com), promoted by the General Direction of Sustainability of the Coast and the Sea (MAPAMA), a methodology to estimate coastal flooding hazard maps was deloped. The Environmental Hydraulics Institute “IHCantabria”, on the basis of the information generated in the C3E project (www.c3e.ihcantabria.com), has elaborated a methodology and tools that can be used at every 200m along the Spanish coast. It incorporates the climate change effects in the acting dynamics, both as of the sea level and of the swell, and coastline changes; which allows estimating the influence of those changes in the coastal flooding hazard maps.
All the generated information was integrated in a Geographic Information Systems creating hazard maps and flooding risk:
