Abstract
A framework to estimate coastal vulnerability to storm impacts at a regional scale is presented. It assesses the physical coastal vulnerability to storm impacts by separately estimating two components: flooding and erosion. It covers the following steps: (i)characterization of the forcing, (ii) evaluation of the induced beach response – inundation and erosion – (hazards quantification), (iii) coastal zone characterization, (iv) definition of a coastal vulnerability index to storms – a comp...
