Soft Cliffs: Prediction of Recession Rates and Erosion Control Techniques: Examples and Publication - FD2403

Description
Project closing statement
Provides state-of-the-art guidance for coastal engineers and planners on how eroding cliffs can be best managed, stressing the need to consider both structural and non-structural solutions to cliff recession problems.


Summary Objective:-
To update, expand and publish the results of an earlier DEFRA project on soft cliffs that predicted recession rates and developed erosion control techniques.

Key Customer Purpose:-
To ensure that managers and technicians working on coastal erosion and protection have access to relevant up-to-date research findings.
