Coastal Risk Information Service

Coastal Risk Information Service (C-RISe) provides access to satellite-derived data on sea level, wind speed and wave heights. The product is based on the application of freely available radar altimetry data with variable spatial and temporal resolution analysed using methods developed at the National Oceanography Centre. C-Rise enables stakeholders such as government agencies, research institutes or local actors concerned with coastal development, risk management or oceanography to use the generated information to improve socio-economic resilience to coastal hazards such as inundation, floods, storm damage, wetland loss, habitat change, coastal erosion and saltwater intrusion. It delivers new sea level and met-ocean data to address a gap in Earth observation (EO) data available to the country partners to monitor coastal risks and provides analysis of historical changes in sea level, alongside met-ocean data on winds and waves, revealing trends and rates of change.
