Coastal Systems

Coasts are complex, dynamic systems whose morphology and ecology are influenced by a range of interacting variables. They also provide a range of ecosystem services of value to humankind. Present concerns over the influence of climate change and sea level rise are particularly pertinent at the coast. Against this background the coastal research group’s work focuses on:

• understanding the spatial and temporal variability in coastal geomorphology and ecology and the linkages between them; and

• mechanisms for sustainable coastal management

We work closely with colleagues in the Centre for Maritime Archaeology and the Quaternary Research Group and approach coastal geomorphic change at timescales from millennia to seconds, with a focus on the decadal to centennial scale. Our spatial scale of investigation ranges from a few metres of a single beach, to regional and global comparisons of coastal landforms. In coastal management, our research assesses the utility of various societal approaches to CZM and the constraints imposed by human values and organisational structures. This is done within the context of evolving legislative drivers at national and EU level.

The group’s work contributes directly the societal debate on responding to the impacts of future climate change and sea-level rise through member’s involvement in European and national initiatives on ICZM and climate change adaptation.

Main research themes are:

:: Processes and Landforms

:: Marine Ecosystems

:: Coastal Management
