Damage cost curves -- relating the typical damage of a natural hazard to its physical magnitude -- represent an indispensable ingredient necessary for climate change impact assessments. Combining such curves with the occurrence probability of the considered natural hazard, expected damage and related risk can be estimated. Here we study recently published city scale damage cost curves for coastal flooding and demonstrate which insights can be gained from the functions only. Therefore, we…
