The dataset contains the extreme storm surge levels (ESSL) at a European scale. The ESSL are estimated from an ensemble of 8 climatic models and the corresponding RCP85 scenarios, for the period from 1/12/2009 to 30/11/2099 and for 8 return periods (5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000) according to the Peak Over Threshold approach.
