Abstract: Floods in estuaries can be driven by different forcing mechanisms from ocean and inland sources and are often aggravated in urban areas by insufficient drainage conditions. Sea - level rise and extreme climate events can exacerbate wat er levels inside the estuaries. D evelopments are being made to reduce the uncertainty of forecast tools in order to provide reliable flood predictions that can support risk assessment and management strategies . The integration of his torical events data analysis in h azard forec asting can contribute to a better knowledge of the dominant flood drivers and to improve the validation of the models . In the present work a data base of historical flood events
