ECFAS Impact Tool, D5.3 – Algorithms for impact assessment - ECFAS project (GA 101004211),

Duo, E.; Montes-Pérez, J.; Souto-Ceccon, P.E.

The European Copernicus Coastal Flood Awareness System (ECFAS) project will contribute to the evolution of the Copernicus Emergency Monitoring Service by demonstrating the technical and operational feasibility of a European Coastal Flood Awareness System. Specifically, ECFAS will provide a much-needed solution to bolster coastal resilience to climate risk and reduce population and infrastructure exposure by monitoring and supporting disaster preparedness, two factors that are fundamental to damage prevention and recovery if a storm hits. 

The ECFAS Proof-of-Concept development will run from January 2021-December 2022. The ECFAS project is a collaboration between Istituto Universitario di Studi Superiori IUSS di Pavia (Italy, ECFAS Coordinator), Mercator Ocean International (France), Planetek Hellas (Greece), Collecte Localisation Satellites (France), Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca (Italy), Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain), University of the Aegean (Greece), and EurOcean (Portugal), and is funded by the European Commission H2020 Framework Programme within the call LC-SPACE-18-EO-2020 - Copernicus evolution: research activities in support of the evolution of the Copernicus services.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme

The deliverables will have restricted access at least until the end of ECFAS

Description of the containing files inside the Dataset.

The ECFAS Impact Tool is composed of a compressed directory with MATLAB 2021b scripts, a compiled version (Windows 10) of the code and a technical document. All products were implemented under Task 5.3 - Selection and verification of the impact assessment method and represent the Deliverable 5.3 - Algorithms for impact assessment.

The ECFAS Impact Tool performs a comprehensive analysis of the impacts generated by coastal inundation by assessing the affected population, the damage to buildings, roads and railways and the exposure of a variety of other assets (e.g. agriculture, points of interest, etc.). The source code (MATLAB 2021b) is provided along with a Windows stand-alone executable. The user can reproduce the impact assessment for the ECFAS test cases, and for user-defined study cases, providing the proper input.

This project has received funding from the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101004211
