I-STORMS
Integrated Sea sTORm Management Strategies
The transnational project, I-STORMS, which is funded by the lnterreg V-B Adriatic-Ionian Programme, aims at improving early warning and civil protection procedures to safeguard the Adriatic-Ionian area from sea storms.

Within the I-STORMS context, some very important ICT Tools have been developed, including the Common Data Sharing Web GiS Tool (Integrated Web System – IWS), an online tool, collecting observation datasets and forecasts from the existing operational forecast systems.

Moreover, the I-STORMS Mobile Application offers to the general public access to the IWS, providing to the users, sea level and waves forecasts, as well as alerts.

Given the recent high water that devastated Venice this month, flooding streets, houses. squares and monuments of cultural heritage, the importance of the I-STORMS Project is more prominent than ever, raising social awareness about climate change and the need for an integrated approach.

THE I-STORMS WEB INTEGRATED SYSTEM (IWS)
In order to address the territorial challenges related to sea storms effects on the coastal areas, the I-STORMS project has developed a shared and interoperable system, the I-STORMS Web Integrated System (IWS), to allow a better exchange of information among partners and stakeholders in the Adriatic-Ionian area.

THE I-STORMS MOBILE APPLICATION
The I-STORMS Mobile Application allows the Web Integrated System data to be explored by non-experts over the smart-phone. In particular, it makes the observations of sea level, waves height, waves direction and waves period available for specific locations of interest. The app gives also access to the sea level and waves forecasts.
