Conference Paper
Full-text available
Coastal cliff erosion process is the result of the interplay of many drivers: subaerial, marine or endogenic, including rock control in terms of both lithology and structure. Today, the proper quantitative characterization of such a complex process still represents a scientific challenge, despite its importance for hazard and risk assessments, and...
Article
Full-text available
The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) on wetlands is becoming a common survey technique that is extremely useful for understanding tidal flats and salt marshes. However, its implementation is not straightforward because of the complexity of the environment and fieldwork conditions. This paper presents the morphological evolution of the Po della...
Article
Full-text available
This work capitalises on the morphodynamic study of a scraped artificial dune built on the sandy beach of Porto Garibaldi (Comacchio, Italy) as a barrier to protect the touristic facilities from sea storms during the winter season and contributes to understanding of the role of elevation data uncertainty and uniform thresholds for change detection...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal flood impact assessments are important tools for risk management and are performed by combining the hazard component with the vulnerability of exposed assets, to quantify consequences (or impacts) in terms of relative or absolute (e.g. financial) damage. The process generates uncertainties that should be taken into account for the correct r...
Article
Coastal risk assessments rely on proper quantification of storm-induced erosion and flooding, and often involve calculations via numerical models. When the real time-series data of a storm are not available as forcing conditions and only bulk information is accessible, synthetic simplified time-evolutions are assumed. The most common approach in co...
Article
Full-text available
The high water level and extreme waves that occur during a storm may threaten coastal landscapes, including densely populated zones that may also suffer from erosion, increasing the flooding magnitude and the total risk level. Climate change and future sea-level rise may result in an increased impact of storms due to the changes in the frequency an...
Article
Full-text available
Managing coastal flood risk at the regional scale requires a prioritization of economic resources along the shoreline. Advanced modeling assessment and open-source tools are now available to support transparent and rigorous risk evaluation and to inform managers and stakeholders in their choices. However, the issues lay in data availability and dat...
Poster
Full-text available
In the current scenarios of sea level rise and increasing coastal erosion processes, dune conservation is one of the potentially more efficient solutions for Disaster Risk Reduction policies. Coastal dunes represent a natural defence barrier from flooding and can protect strategic infrastructures and populated urban areas located behind them. The a...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal communities and assets are exposed to flooding and erosion hazards due to extreme storm events, which may increase in intensity due to climatological factors in the coming futures.. Coastal managers are tasked with developing risk management plans mitigating risk during all phases of the disaster cycle. This necessitates rapid, time-efficie...

Coastal communities and assets are exposed to flooding and erosion hazards due to extreme storm events, which may increase in intensity due to climatological factors in the incoming future. Coastal managers are tasked with developing risk-management plans mitigating risk during all phases of the disaster cycle. This necessitates rapid, time-efficie...
Article
Full-text available
Integrated risk assessment approaches to support coastal managers' decisions when designing plans are increasingly becoming an urgent need. To enable efficient coastal management, possible present and future scenarios must be included, disaster risk reduction measures integrated, and multiple hazards dealt with. In this work, the Bayesian network-b...

Integrated risk assessment approaches to support coastal managers’ decisions when designing plans are increasingly becoming an urgent need. To enable efficient coastal management, possible present and future scenarios must be included, disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures integrated, and multiple hazards dealt with.

Article
The identification and classification of critical coastal areas is becoming more and more important from a coastal management point of view, especially considering future climate change. The standardized assessment of multiple hazards and their potential impacts is crucial, in terms of risk management, for those coastal areas where both marine and...
Article
The Italian coasts are threatened by coastal flooding and erosion. The Emilia-Romagna region coastline is exposed to marine storms because of its low-lying nature and massive urbanization. Regional managers need comprehensive tools for coastal storm risk assessment. The RISC-KIT Coastal Risk Assessment Framework (CRAF) provides a conceptual framewo...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – Toolkit (RISC-KIT) FP7 EU project (2013-2017) aims to produce a set of innovative and EU-coherent open-source and open- access methods, tools and management approaches (the RISC-KIT) in support of coastal managers, decision-makers and policy makers to reduce risk and increase resilience to low- freq...
Article
Household air pollution (HAP) from biomass fuel smoke is a major health risk, especially in developing countries. The ventilation of buildings and the type of fume discharge could also affect HAP. The present study aims to investigate the impact of stove type and kitchen characteristics on levels of pollutants. In particular, we investigated the po...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The coastal area of Porto Garibaldi-Bellocchio (Ferrara, Italy) is subjected to erosion that affects both tourism and generates coastal risk. Mega-nourishments are nowadays one of the most promising measures to compensate erosion and the Dutch Sand Engine project is confirming their capability. A first-step numerical study of the implementation of...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The work of the RISC-KIT Project aims at demonstrating a high quality, high resolution end-to-end Early Warning System (EWS) over the case study area, Sandwip Island (Bangladesh). This project is implemented in twinning partnership with the Coastal Inundation Forecasting Demonstration Project for Bangladesh (CIFDP-B) of the World Meteorological Org...
Article
Background: Residents of the Himalayan valleys uniquely adapted to their hypoxic environment in terms of pulmonary vasculature, but their systemic vascular function is still largely unexplored. The aim of the study was to investigate vascular function and structure in rural Sherpa population, permanently living at high altitude in Nepal (HA), in c...
Article
Full-text available
Aim: Biomass fuels are widely used in developing countries for cooking and heating, representing a relevant cause of indoor air pollution (IAP). The role of IAP in cardiovascular disease is poorly studied. Aim of the study is to evaluate endothelial function, an early marker of atherosclerosis, in high-altitude dwellers in the Kumbu Valley (Nepal)...
Article
Purpose: Endothelial function and carotid intima-media thickness (IMT), are established markers of vascular aging. Aim of the study was to investigate the presence of early markers of atherosclerosis in rural Sherpa population of Kumbu Valley (Nepal), in comparison with lowlanders Caucasian subjects. Methods: 99 Sherpa subjects, living at 2500-3800...

H2020, Call LC-SPACE-18-EO-2020 (Copernicus evolution: Research activities in support of the evolution of the Copernicus services). ECFAS will contribute to the evolution of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) by demonstrating the technical and operational feasibility of a European coastal flood awareness system. ECFAS will develop a Proof-of-Concept that will integrate and expand the set of information currently available in the Copernicus Core Services. ECFAS will assess the risk of coastal flooding at the European scale, contributing to the creation of a fully integrated risk cycle monitoring service. ECFAS will implement an awareness system for coastal areas (preparation phase) and impact assessment products (response phase), which are essential to implement effective recovery and prevention actions. ECFAS will evaluate the consequences of storms also in terms of coastal erosion. Duration: January 2021-Decmber 2023
