Storm surges represent a major hazard for many coastal regions worldwide. The 1953 and 1962 catastrophes are well remembered in Europe, and recent incidents in Bangladesh and Myanmar caused over 100,000 casualties. Developing innovative responses and overcoming the frequently fragmented discussion about this global phenomenon and its regional implications call for improved knowledge of present risks and future conditions based on sound interdisciplinary approaches.This selection of articles presents multiple scientific and management oriented perspectives on current and future storm surges, covering the fields of observing, modelling and forecasting, risk and vulnerability analysis, planning and innovative coastal protection concepts. It originates from the international ' 2010 Storm Surges Congress - Risk and Management of Current and Future Storm Surges,' initiated and organized by the Institute of Coastal Research, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (formerly the GKSS-Research Centre) in collaboration with the KlimaCampus (CliSAP) of the University of Hamburg, Germany. The Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) co-sponsored the event and its international project office (IPO) provided the necessary organizational support. The congress was generously supported by international and national partners. Some highlights:Remote sensing surveillance and mapping of storm surge extent based on NASA MODIS sensors may ultimately provide new global insights into the vulnerability of deltas where human pressures outbalance natural land-ocean forcing. Up-scaling hazard lines and risk mapping from local to full continental scale is the ambition in India. From an insurance risk perspective, its societal perception and economic issues determine societal response options. In urban contexts flood risk is anticipated as a combination of climate change-induced sea level rise and socio-economic drivers. A cost-benefit analysis of flood defence in London underlines the fact that future investment will be highly beneficial, thoughtful planning rather than rushing to new engineering solutions is preferable.Several modelling case studies and approaches are presented, covering the effects of individual storms, the development of analytical models that can help us to understand relevant processes and mechanisms, and sensitivity studies that test the impact and relevance of various physical processes for storm surge generation and evolution. Hydrodynamic models applied to different emission scenarios suggest that the threat of extreme storm surges in the North Sea may increase but strong decadal fluctuations and internal variability need to be considered. A Korean study suggests that future global warming may not always lead to an increase in the number of intense cyclones or the magnitude of associated storm surges.Past and recent storm surges arising at the dune coast of France call for improved assessment and management of a growing flood risk in future sea-level rise projections. In the same context rather than deterministic approaches, considering the uncertainties that influence extreme water levels can significantly improve the design levels of coastal structures and flood defences. The innovative Dutch "Building with Nature" concept employs natural processes for coastal flood protection.Previously published in Natural Hazards, Volume 66, No. 3, 2013

Maximum Protection and Convenience for Computers, Notebooks and Other Electronics 3 Modes of protection (L-N : L-G : N-G) The remaining modes continue to provide protection in the event a mode of protection is compromised as a result of a surge. EMI and RFI noise filtering Reduces line noise that can cause data loss and keyboard errors. Power Line Communications (PLC) compatible Protects PLC network adapters without interrupting network communications. Fail Safe Mode Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. APC’s SurgeArrest fail safe, which means that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply ensuring that no damaging surges reach your equipment. Protection Working Indicator SurgeArrest will warn you if its circuitry has been damaged by heavy strike or power line surge and it is unable to provide 100% protection. If still under warranty, APC will then replace your damaged SurgeArrest free of charge. Overload Indicator Indicator illuminates when connected equipment draws more power than unit’s capacity. To remedy the condition, unplug less vital equipment. 180 degree Rotating Cord Retainer A 180-degree rotating cord with strain relief offers flexibility in positioning the SurgeArrest, and in routing the power cord. Dataline Surge Protection Provides protection of connected equipment from power surges on the data lines. Cord management Reduces cord clutter. Safety-agency approved Ensures the product has been tested and approved to work safely with the connected service provider equipment and within the specified environment. Building Wiring Fault Indicator This LED informs users of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit. Lightning and Surge Protection To prevent damage to your equipment from power surges and spikes. SurgeArrest Performance Features & Benefits Protection Lightning and Surge Protection SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and Thermal fuse ensure instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spike or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment. Unlike the APC SurgeArrest products, most surge suppressors continue to let power through even after circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to other damaging surges. IEEE let-through rating and UL 1449 compliance The 'Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) Let-Through Voltage rating is based on a test that subjects a Surge Protector to a 6,000 volt spike. The rating equates to the amount of excess voltage that reaches connected equipment. The lower the number, the better the performance of the Surge Protector is. Underwriter's Laboratory's UL1449 surge protection safety standard uses these ratings to help users gauge performance. UL's best Transient Voltage Surge Suppressor (TVSS) Let-Through Voltage rating is "300V". Data-line Protection Protection of data lines (Ethernet, Coaxial and Phone lines) ensures complete protection of your equipment from surges. It is very important to protect your equipment from “back door” surges traveling through data lines, as they can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines. Noise Filtering Attenuates EMI/RFI line noise that can cause data errors and keyboard lockups, ensuring better performance of protected equipment. Phone Line Splitter Allows use of two pieces of equipment at once, such as a modem and phone. Safety Plug Activated Safety Shutters Shutters protect users from accidental contact with unused outlets. Overload Indicator Indicator illuminates when connected equipment draws more power than unit’s capacity. To remedy the condition, unplug less vital equipment. Adjustable Cable Management Keeps cords and cables neat and organized. Catastrophic Event Protection SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and Thermal fuse ensure instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spike or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment. Unlike the APC SurgeArrest products, most surge suppressors continue to let power through even after circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to other damaging surges. Cord management To help organize power cords. Fail Safe Mode Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. APC’s SurgeArrest fail safe, which means that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply ensuring that no damaging surges reach your equipment. Protection Working Indicator SurgeArrest will warn you if its circuitry has been damaged by heavy strike or power line surge and it is unable to provide 100% protection. If still under warranty, APC will then replace your damaged SurgeArrest free of charge. Site wiring fault indicator In order to work properly, surge suppressors require a correctly wired and grounded outlet. APC surge protectors identify dangerous wiring problems before you plug in your equipment. Convenience Transformer Block Spacing Connect bulky transformer block plugs without covering up other outlets. 180 degree Rotating Cord Retainer A 180-degree rotating cord with strain relief offers flexibility in positioning the SurgeArrest, and in routing the power cord.
