This paper assess sea-level rise related coastal flood impacts for Emilia-Romagna (Italy) using the Dynamic Interactive Vulnerability Assessment (DIVA) modeling framework and investigate the sensitivity of the model to four uncertainty dimensions, namely (1) elevation, (2) population (3) vertical land movement (4) scale and resolution of assessment. A one-driver-at-a-time sensitivity approach is used in order to explore and quantify the effects of uncertainties in input data and assessment… 
Unravelling the Importance of Uncertainties in Global-Scale Coastal Flood Risk Assessments under Sea Level Rise
Global scale assessments of coastal flood damage and adaptation costs under 21st century sea-level rise are associated with a wide range of uncertainties, including those in future projections of

Elevation data are critical for assessments of sea-level rise and coastal flooding exposure. Previous research has demonstrated that the quality of data used in elevation-based assessments must be
Uncertainties in projections of sandy beach erosion due to sea level rise: an analysis at the European scale
TLDR
This work quantifies SLR driven potential shoreline retreat and consequent coastal land loss in Europe during the twenty-first century using different combinations of geophysical datasets for (a) the location and spatial extent of sandy beaches and (b) their nearshore slopes.
A Mediterranean coastal database for assessing the impacts of sea-level rise and associated hazards
TLDR
A new coastal database for the Mediterranean basin that is intended for coastal impact and adaptation assessment to sea-level rise and associated hazards on a regional scale and is expected to be a useful source of information for a wide range of coastal applications.
Assessing storm surge risk under future sea-level rise scenarios: a case study in the North Adriatic coast
Low-lying coastal areas are often prone to storm surge flooding that can render severe damages to properties, destruction of habitats, threat to human safety and the environment. The impacts of
Global-scale benefit–cost analysis of coastal flood adaptation to different flood risk drivers using structural measures
Abstract. Coastal flood hazard and exposure are expected to increase over the course of the 21st century, leading to increased coastal flood risk. In order to limit the increase in future risk, or
Using global tide gauge data to validate and improve the representation of extreme sea levels in flood impact studies
The largest collection of tide gauge records assembled to date, called GESLA-2, has been used to provide reliable extreme sea level parameters at 655 locations around the world. This has enabled a
Global scale benefit-cost analysis of coastal flood adaptation to different flood risk drivers
Abstract. Coastal flood hazard and exposure are expected to increase over the course of the 21st century, leading to increased coastal flood risk. In order to limit the increase in future risk, or
Uncertainty and Bias in Global to Regional Scale Assessments of Current and Future Coastal Flood Risk
Abstract This study provides a literature‐based comparative assessment of uncertainties and biases in global to world‐regional scale assessments of current and future coastal flood risks, considering

Raster modelling of coastal flooding from sea‐level rise
TLDR
It is found that the rate and extent of inundation were dependent on horizontal resolution and assumptions made on hydrological connectivity, and the variation in flood extent was much larger at low sea‐level projections than at high sea-level projections.
Uncertainties in Measuring Populations Potentially Impacted by Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding
TLDR
The findings suggest that the choice of one particular dataset over another can translate to a difference of more than 7.5 million vulnerable people for countries with extensive coastal populations, such as Indonesia and Japan.
A New Global Coastal Database for Impact and Vulnerability Analysis to Sea-Level Rise
Abstract A new global coastal database has been developed within the context of the DINAS-COAST project. The database covers the world's coasts, excluding Antarctica, and includes information on more
Sensitivity of Coastal Flood Risk Assessments to Digital Elevation Models
Most coastal flood risk studies make use of a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) in addition to a projected flood water level in order to estimate the flood inundation and associated damages to property
A Methodology for Modeling Coastal Space for Global Assessment
Abstract A coherent approach to structuring reference units for coastal vulnerability analysis is often required for large-scale analyses of the coastal system. However, a review of existing spatial
Future Coastal Population Growth and Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Flooding - A Global Assessment
TLDR
This work combines spatially explicit estimates of the baseline population with demographic data in order to derive scenario-driven projections of coastal population development and highlights countries and regions with a high degree of exposure to coastal flooding and help identifying regions where policies and adaptive planning for building resilient coastal communities are not only desirable but essential.
Critical storm thresholds for significant morphological changes and damage along the Emilia-Romagna coastline, Italy
Abstract The definition of storm morphological thresholds along the coast of the Emilia-Romagna Region strictly depends on its configuration and variability. The region is located in northern Italy,
Flood risk assessments at different spatial scales
TLDR
A priori flood risk assessments have become an important part of flood management practices, but there are also notable differences between assessments at different spatial scales, for instance those related to the methodology, use of assessments and uncertainties.
Assessment of Vulnerability and Adaptation to Sea-Level Rise for the Coastal Zone of Germany
Abstract Germany's coast extends over 3700 km on both the North and Baltic Seas and is shared by five coastal states. Major seaport cities, Hamburg and Bremen, form two of these states, whereas rural
Coastal flood damage and adaptation costs under 21st century sea-level rise
TLDR
Coastal flood damage and adaptation costs under 21st century sea-level rise are assessed on a global scale taking into account a wide range of uncertainties in continental topography data, population data, protection strategies, socioeconomic development and sea- level rise.
