Two projects ECLISEA and INSeaPTION developed a demonstrator visualizing areas located below high-tides under different sea-level rise scenarios

Two projects ECLISEA and INSeaPTION have developed together a demonstrator which has been adapted to be included in DRIAS (the French national climate service) as a climate service demonstrator. This was done with the support of colleagues from Météo-France and the DRIAS development team.

The demonstrator aims at visualizing areas located below high-tides under different sea-level rise scenarios. It uses tidal level data from the Hydrodynamic institute (SHOM) and Lidar data (high resolution topographic data) from the Geographical Institute (IGN), which have been reprocessed at BRGM, following interoperability principles agreed within the ECLISEA project. Depending on actual adaptation policies, areas identified at threat within the tool may be flooded or not. Yet, the demonstrator is useful for a preliminary assessment ahead of more detailed coastal impact studies.
