Abstract

Often, in port planning of new facilities, extension of existing ones or alternatives facing climate change (CC), infrastructural aspects take precedence over operational ones. Although risk assessments developed to support Port Authorities in the decision-making process are applicable to both aspects, this work has focused on those considered least developed: operational risks; more precisely, in the second term included in the calculation of risk: Probability, VULNERABILITY and Costs. Some key concepts used in the present work are operational risk and Area of Operational Interest (AOI). To assess the sensitivity of the vulnerability of AOIs to changes in magnitude, duration and direction of met- ocean agents derived from CC, a methodology has been developed and applied to the Port of Gijon (Spain).
