Storm surge development in the Southern North Sea and the Elbe river in Europe during the last century and its practical application
Keywords:Greenhouse, Storm Surges, North Sea, Elbe, Design Level, Frequency
ABSTRACT. The development of storm surges during the last century in the European North Sea and the Elbe River is presented. The results show an increase in the number of the storm tides and the storm surge curves, but no increase in the level. The reason for the increase of the storm surge curves - especially those with more than one storm tide crest - must be an increase of the wind duration. With the analyses of the storm surge curve and the storm surge peak, it is possible to calculate the design dike level.
