WP 1.2 Salt water dynamics
The overall objective of WP 1.2 “Salt Water Dynamics” is to quantify the salt water volumes passing dikes under storm surge conditions and leading to a flooding of the hinterland. The key tasks include
- quantification of wave overtopping over dikes and occurrence probability of mean overtopping discharges,
- analysis of dike breaching,
- flood inundation simulation of the hinterland; including sensitivity and probabilistic analyses.
