The ultimate goal of ASTARTE is to reach a higher level of tsunami resilience in the NEAM (North East Atlantic & Mediterranean) region, to improve preparedness of coastal populations, and, ultimately, to save lives and assets. 

The main objectives are:

  1. Assessing long term recurrence of tsunamis
  2. Improving the identification of tsunami generation mechanisms
  3. Developing new cost-effective computational tools for hazard assessment
  4. Ameliorate the understanding of tsunami interactions with coastal structures
  5. Enhance tsunami detection capabilities, forecast and early warning skills in the NEAM region
  6. Establishing new approaches to quantify vulnerability and risk and to identify the key components of tsunami resilience and their implementation in the NEAM region
