METHODOLOGY FOR CASCADING EFFECTS IN CRISIS
SnowBall consists in a deep analysis of cascading effects and development of methods to anticipate them; and in a Decision Support System able to display current crisis monitoring and results of simulated decisions integrating cascading effects, thanks to a data collection system, an Events Log Database, Simulators and a Dashboard. SnowBall innovates in its modular approach to crises, its modelling techniques, its agent-supported coupled grid simulations, its generic Events Log Database and tools to follow public behaviour (Emergency Alert, social networks, mobile application).

SnowBall DSS: an ensemble Multi-Criteria Decision Support System encompassing cascading effects for disaster management.
Proceedings of the EWG-DSS International Conference on Decision Support System Technology, ICDSST 2016.
The partners have used the SnowBall tools in three different situations: storm in Finland caused flooding in Poland and volcanic eruption in Greece. These simulations allowed two things, to assess the efficiency of the tool in simulating cascading effects, and the accuracy of the simulation outcomes and to assess the ability of authorities and first responders to minimize cascading effects, and the impact of a crisis. This report on Simulations is divided in two parts, first part A describes outcome of the pilot cases in Finland, Poland and Greece. The second part B describes in detail the reference scenario in Greece (Santorini), showing the theoretical model for pilot application of SnowBall.
