The single-hazard research addresses the development of a methodology to determine the vulnerability indexes of buildings to
- floods induced by the increase of sea level due to climate changes
- floods induced by the extreme sea waves
The first step is to collect data to determine the single-risk exposure of buildings and make single-hazard exposure maps.
The second step is the development of a methodology for assessment of multi-hazards exposure in coastal and urban areas.
For the multi-hazard analysis, the Spatial Multi-Criteria Analysis will be used, a technique considering different aspects to take the best decision.
Spatial Multi-Criteria Analysis is key to multi-hazard decision-making because it allows identification and comparison of different alternatives based on multiple objectives and criteria.
The methodologies developed within PMO-GATE project will be applied to the Croatian test site, particularly the area of Kaštel Kambelovac, at the north side of Kastela Bay.
The results of single and multi-risk analysis will be made available to the public through an interactive Web-map.
Maps of the spatial distribution of the critical zones most prone to coastal flood, extreme sea waves and seismic risk will be essential to preventing, managing and overcoming natural-hazard risks.
