Predicting large-scale coastal geomorphological change

A new practical framework and methodology for creating new models capable of predicting long-term and large-scale geomorphological evolution has been developed.



The outputs of the study enable clear and consistent understanding of the geomorphology to support the management of complex coastal environments. This is supported by an evaluation of selected practical modelling and analysis techniques for the prediction of mid to long-term coastal geomorphological evolution including management interventions. The resulting reports include a comprehensive description of how the results of geomorphological studies can be incorporated through the process of Expert Geomorphological Assessment (EGA) to improve the confidence in the decision making process.
