Full TitleAssessment, STrategy And Risk reduction for Tsunamis in Europe
ASTARTE aims to develop a comprehensive strategy to mitigate tsunami impact in the NEAM (North East Atlantic, Mediterranean and Adjacent Seas) region. To achieve this goal, an interdisciplinary consortium has been assembled. It includes all region systems of CTWPs (candidate tsunami-watch providers) of NEAM (national tsunami warning centers) and expert institutions across Europe and worldwide. ASTARTE will improve i) basic knowledge of tsunami generation and recurrence going beyond simple catalogues, with novel empirical data and new statistical analyses for assessing long-term recurrence and hazards of large events in sensitive areas of NEAM, ii) numerical techniques for tsunami simulation, with focus on real-time codes and novel statistical emulation approaches, and iii) methods for assessment of hazard, vulnerability, and risk.
