Abstract
The main objective of the European-funded MICORE project (www.micore.eu) was to develop and demonstrate online tools for the reliable prediction of storm impact on coastlines and to develop and enhance existing civil protection strategies. The magnitude and frequency of storms was analysed at 9 diverse European sites in order to determine storm trends over a period spanning between 30 and 100 yr. Meteorological and marine data available at national and European level are included in the analysis...
