Short Title SSC2010
Summary The Storm Surges Congress 2010 aims to engage the relevant actors and to serve as an enabling forum for exchange of state-of-the-art expert knowledge and practitioners’ views.

The objective is to work towards a common perception of key concerns including options of mitigation and adaptation. Practitioners and researchers are invited to delineate future challenges for science, and dialogue across science-policy-practice interfaces.

The goal is to foster our mutual understanding of relevant spatial, temporal as well as institutional scales that need to be considered in response to current and future storm surge risks.

The follow-up activities to the JCOMM Scientific and Technical Symposium on Storm Surges http://www.surgesymposium.org, 3-6 October 2007), and currently planned ESA Storm Surge Symposium (http://www.jcomm.info/SSucm) will be closely coordinated and taken into account in the planning and conducting this event.

The Storm Surges Congress 2010 is organized jointly by the GKSS Research Centre and LOICZ, and supported by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO and many other national/international intitutions.
