Storm Surges

CENAS Project Storm Surge Model from University of Padova, Prof. Giuseppe Gambolati Coastal areas around the Northern Adriatic Sea have always been threatened by dangerous coastal flooding. These flooding events happen more often than in historical times because of a gradual increase of mean sea level.The Adriatic Sea is subject to storm surge attacks because of its geographical position and geometry. Storm surges are most effectly generated by periodic strong winds, known as `Scirocco' winds, from the south-east, directed along its length.
