|Abstract:||This paper describes the recent advances on the research project HIDRALERTA - "Flood Forecast and Early Warning System in Coastal and Port Areas", whose main objective is developing a system for forecasting, warning and assessment of risks associated with wave overtopping and flooding in coastal and port areas, supported by measurements/predictions of waves and water levels in these areas. The case study here presented is the port and bay of Praia da Vitória, at the Terceira Island, Azores. Methodologies and accomplishments of the HIDRALERTA project achieved so far, with the focus on its more relevant results, are herein described.|
