Title: STORM - A toolkit of methods and technologies to protect CH against extreme weather and climate changes
STORM provides technological and procedural tools and methods to support decision makers faced with climate change and natural hazards during the Disaster Risk Reduction lifecycle, including prevention, preparedness, response and recovery activities. Specifically, STORM proposes a set of novel predictive models and improved non-invasive and non-destructive methods of survey and diagnosis, for effective prediction of environmental changes and for revealing threats and conditions that could damage cultural heritage. To this end, STORM determines how different vulnerable material and structures are affected by extreme weather events and risks associated to climatic condition, offering improved, effective adaptation and mitigation strategies, systems and technologies. An integrated system featuring new low-cost compact eco-friendly sensors, resilient solutions and survey and diagnosis technologies (including LiDAR and UAVs), as well as crowdsensing and crowdsourcing techniques will be provided over a collaborative, cloud based platform for collecting and enhancing knowledge, processes and methodologies on sustainable and effective safeguarding and management of European CH.
