TO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF COASTAL AND FLOOD PROTECTION STRUCTURES UNDER TERMS OF CHANGING CLIMATE CONDITIONS

Peter Froehle

Abstract


Consequences resulting from future Climate Change may be one of the most severe threats for people and economies in many countries of the world. Besides the problem of sea level rise, also possible general changes in the frequency and intensity of storms as well as general changes in the average wind field are expected for the future.
With respect to the coastal protection possible future strategies and also possible future measure are analyzed and assessed with the result that technical, morphological, socio-economic and aesthetical aspects play a role.

Keywords


climate change; adaptation methods; flood protection
