Abstract: Due to their location at the intersection between sea and land, marine facilities are most vulnerable to various climate change impacts, but restrictions for the management of climate change challenges are evident like differences in planning horizons and lack of relevant information. As a basis for climate change adapted processes in port planning and operation a matrix containing possible climate change impacts and possibly affected port assets is presented. Furthermore, steps of a vulnerability analysis of seaports against climate change effects are described and the sensitivity of specific port assets to climate change effects as well as possible adaptation are exemplified.
