Combined potential impacts of changes in inundation heights of a 100 year river flood event and a sea level rise adjusted 100 year coastal storm surge event on registered World Heritage sites and museums.
Theme(s): Environment and Energy - Society - weather modification - impact assessment - climate - Environment, Climate and Energy
Impact calculated as combination of regional exposure to climatic changes and recent data on regional sensitivity. Climatic changes derived from comparison of 1961-1990 and 2071-2100 climate projections from CCLM model for the IPCC SRES A1B scenario. Regional coastal storm surge heights were adjusted with a one metre sea level rise.
