A proof-of-concept for the implementation of a European Copernicus Coastal Flood Awareness System – ECFAS

The increasing number of tools and algorithms able to process and extract qualitative and quantitative information from Earth Observation products has an enormous potential to support the evaluation of weather-induced climate risks. The ECFAS project “A proof-of-concept for the implementation of a European Copernicus Coastal Flood Awareness System” ( contributes to the evolution of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) by demonstrating the technical and operational feasibility of a European Coastal Flood Awareness System, a product that is not yet available in CEMS.

The Special Issue will include the main outcomes of ECFAS for the evaluation of coastal flood risk and beach erosion, contributing to a fully integrated risk cycle monitoring service.
