Description

Sites vulnerable to coastal flooding are located on open coastal regions directly exposed to or having a shore on a major body of water, semi-enclosed bodies of water such as lagoons, estuaries, rivers, fjords and rias, or enclosed bodies of water such as lakes and reservoirs. Floods due to waves, surges, seiches and tsunamis are discussed, including ways to combine the effects of these to calculate design values for run-up and draw-down.
