The main aim of the STORMRISK project was to integrate and make accessible the knowledge and experience developed over decades to end-users across the North Sea Region. The project has acted as a source of inspiration for landowners and managers and helps them to identify not only the means but also the aims for a modernised and multifunctional Achievements: The joint, but different, experiences from the North Sea Region has made it possible to create a digital spatial program that can predict how sensible the forest is for certain wind loads in the whole North Sea Region. This is one of the most interesting products of the project since it is directly accessible on the web. It is a user friendly program that is also of direct value for the end-user (landowner, manager).The project tested two programmes WINDA and ForestGALE to see how well they could predict areas sensitive to storm and after these two tests, 70-90% of test stands could properly predicted. With information on their own forest and landscape they can now create their own storm risk analysis of their forest and see if there are areas with higher risk.
