Assessment, STrategy And Risk Reduction for Tsunamis in Europe

    Project Details


    ASTARTE is organized to foster tsunami resilience in Europe, through innovative research on scientific problems critical to enhance forecast skills in terms of sources, propagation and impact. ASTARTE will employ lessons on coastal resilience learned from disaster surveys following tsunamis and hurricane surges. Within ASTARTE, we will acquire new information to complete the existing European knowledge base, and we will benefit from a stronger integration than ever attempted previously in the field. This will involve close cooperation with coastal populations, civil protection, emergency management and other local organizations.
    ASTARTE is a collaborative project within the FP7-ENV2013 6.4-3
