Physical and biological dynamic coastal processes and their role in coastal recovery (BLUE-coast)

Status: completed
Publication State: preview


BLUE-coast aims to inform coastal management by reducing uncertainties in the prediction of medium-term (years) and long-term (decadal and longer) regional sediment budgets, morphological change and how the coast recovers after sequences of storms. Approach: Our teams are undertaking observations and experiments to develop modelling tools that will be used to evaluate coastal resilience and scope alternative management options. BLUE-coast combines the expertise of biologists, coastal engineers, geologists, geographers, and oceanographers with complementary field, laboratory and numerical skills. Areas: As it is not feasible to quantify all the relevant morphodynamic processes at high spatial resolution across the entire UK coast, we focus on a number of representative coastal systems.
