Abstract: Under the framework of the ECOMAPORT project, two new prototypes of the forecast, early warning and risk management HIDRALERTA system to the ports of Madalena do Pico and S. Roque do Pico, both on the Island of Pico, Azores are undergoing. Those prototypes are intended to assess and predict, on a regular basis, the risk of coastal overtopping and consequent flooding and the risk to navigation, in particular as regards the safety of moored and maneuvered vessels, both caused by wave agitation. Additionally, it is intended to guarantee the functionality of the prototype of the HIDRALERTA system currently implemented in the port of Praia da Vitória, in Terceira Island, Azores since 2015, and to implement a new aspect regarding navigation risk. The new prototypes are based on the methodology already developed for the port of Praia da Vitória, where the first prototype of the HIDRALERTA system has been in operation since 2015. This paper essentially describes the work carried out to date on the system and their application to the ports of S. Roque do Pico and Madalena do Pico.
