Since half of the world’s population currently lives within 60 km of the coast, the study of coastal hazards is a key issue from both a scientific and a management perspective. This page covers some of our work on coastal hazards.
As a collaborative effort with the center of e-research from the University of Auckland, an amazing flooding visualization of Auckland (NZ) over time has been developed at a high resolution. SLR, astronomical tide and storm surge are the parameters involved in the visualization.
NOTE: This is a visualization only, more work is needed to evaluate each contribution to flooding, This is particularly the case for tides (we here consider almost king tides) and storm surge (we here consider a large value).
To experience the visualization and the separate effects of seal level rise, storm surge and tides (works better on Chrome):
