Cheias e inundações : avaliação, impactos e instrumentos para a gestão do risco

Santos, Pedro Manuel Pinto dos, 1975-

O presente trabalho dedica-se ao estudo de diferentes componentes do processo de governação do risco de cheias e inundações. Do lado da avaliação do risco, explorase em particular a avaliação da suscetibilidade e da perigosidade, e a aplicação de bases de dados de perdas devidas a cheias e inundações na busca da melhor compreensão dos processos que causam o risco. A passagem para o estudo da gestão do risco bas...


A local-scale approach to estuarine flood risk management

Freire, Paula; Tavares, Alexandre O.; Sá, Luís; Oliveira, Anabela; Fortunato, André B.; Santos, Pedro P. dos; Rilo, Ana; Gomes, João L.; Rogeiro, João

New challenges in flood risk management are raised by climate change and land-use development. These challenges are particularly complex in estuarine and coastal systems, where different hazard sources interact in a dynamic socio-economic context. This paper presents an innovative approach to support flood risk management in estuaries. The approach, developed at a local-scale basis, is applied in the case study...


Scale issues in local vulnerability assessment: implications in risk and urban ...

Santos, P.; Tavares, A.; Freire, P.; Rilo, Ana

The assessment of vulnerability provides valuable knowledge in the risk assessment steps of a risk governance process. Given the multiscale, multilevel and multisectorial aspects of flood risk, the diversified entities that directly and indirectly intervene in risk management require specific outputs from the assessment studies. Vulnerability assessment methodologies should, therefore, produce the most adequate...


The effect of storm events in the Tagus estuarine margins

Freire, P.; Fortunato, A. B.; Rodrigues, M.; Santos, P.; Rilo, Ana; Tavares, A.

Floods in estuaries can be forced by factors associated to ocean and inland sources. In the particular case of the Tagus estuary, the water level variability is mostly driven by tides and storm surges. One of the most recent flood events with the greatest impact in this estuary occurred on February 2010 associated with the passage of the Xynthia storm by the Portuguese coast. In the present study this flood eve...
