Winsemius, H. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference

Description

Over the last few years, global coastal flood risk assessments have been conducted using a combination of weather reanalyses, coastal tide and surge models, sea level rise scenarios, inundation and impact models. Soil subsidence has not received much attention in these scenarios, even though subsidence rates are expected to be high in many urban zones in delta areas, where most of the costs of flooding are expected.
