The “Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2007 on the assessment and management of flood risks” contitutes standardized and coordinated action in flood risk management. It intends beside a preliminary flood risk assessment the production of flood hazard maps and flood risk maps for extreme event scenarios and events of medium likelihood. Furthermore it demands the establishing of flood risk management plans.

In this study an analysis of the storm surge risk – consisting of hazard analysis, vulnerability analysis and risk assessment – is carried out for Hamburg in respect of the Directive of the European Community.

The damage potential evaluation is based on the digital cadastral map and official statistics. A GIS-based inundation model is used for the simulation of storm surge events and possible burstings of a dike in Hamburg.

The procedure’s suitability for the implementation of the Directive is examined in regard to flood risk management plans. Moreover drafts have been prepared for hazard and risk maps according to the Directive.
