Coastal monitoring and historical coastal change workshops

As part of the Defra-funded Coastal Monitoring and Historical Coastal Change project, the British Geological Survey (BGS) are looking for participants to share their knowledge in a series of workshops.

The first, taking place on 12 October 2021, aims to identify techniques for deriving historical coastal change in different coastal environments. There will also be a discussion around user requirement for coastal change data.

The second, taking place on 2 December 2021, will be focused on exploring different historical coastal mapping technologies, with the aim of helping BGS develop a ranking system.

The goal of this project is to review and document historical coastal change along the English and Welsh coastlines over the last 100 years, to help better inform future coastal management and decision making.

If you’re interested, you can register your availability to participate in the workshops, and BGS will be in touch.
