This paper aims at presenting two diíferent methodologies to evaluale wave overtopping consequences: the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Analytic Network Process (ANP). The AHP is based on lhe comparison of successive and paired information that was selecled and quantified having in mind its hierarchic prioritization by taking into account lhe estimated relevance of each considered criterion or indicator. The ANP provides a general framework lo deal with decisions without making assumplions about the independence of higher level elements from lower level eiements and about the independence of the elements within a levei. In fact, the ANP uses a network without the need lo specify leveis as in a hierarchy structure iike lhe AHP. Influence is a central concept in the ANP. Applicalion of the AHP and the ANP melhodologies to lhe case study of Praia da Vitória harbour (Azores, Porlugal) is presenied. With the AHP, a consequences level map is obtained.
