DEVELOPED WORK

This work aims to contribute to the assessment of the coastal vulnerability of Sea Level Rise (SLR) and floods caused by occurence of extreme events, which is fundamental on supporting the definition of Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation. The scenarios for 2025, 2050 and 2100 were evaluated with different return periods of extreme events, for which Physical Vulnerability Cartography of the Continental Atlantic Coast of Portugal was produced, based on the zones that will be affected by SLR.

Lisboa

Flood Hazard Index

Corresponding to 5 levels of confidence that are separated by 20% flood probability intervals (conditional probability, conditioned to the central estimate of the SLR projection).

Lisboa

Coastal Vulnerability Index

Corresponding to the physical susceptibility of flood. Parameters: Flood Hazard, Hydrographic Network, Coastline Type, Distance to Coast Line, Geological Drift and Land Use.

Lisboa

Frequent Submersion

Represents the areas that will be frequently submerged in a permanent basis for future scenarios, due to the MSLR. Represents the additional intertidal zone.

Lisboa

Demographic Analysis

Based on data from CENSOS 2011, the number of Buildings and the Residents in the coastal areas classified as Vulnerability, by each administrative unit (district and county).
