BLUECoast Project - Coastal Management

Taking advantage of a brief respite in the weather MV FlatHolm has completed another contract for team at National Oceanography Centre Liverpool successfully recovering seabed landers for the BLUEcoast research project in the Thames after 7 week deployment

BLUEcoast 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

Using three distinct coastal types, which incorporate the range of conditions typically observed in temperate coasts, we aim to deliver improved scientific knowledge and enhanced modelling capability for dynamic coastal environments. The new knowledge and model capability developed will then be applied to deliver scenarios for two particularly challenging coastal locations:
