UK Gravel Barriers

Increasing coastal resilience against climate change

Project site overview in the Norfolk coast © isardSAT

‘UK Gravel Barriers’ seeks to improve the understanding and modelling capability of gravel barrier systems in the British coasts to support more sustainable coastal management, increasing resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change.This project will characterise multi-hazards on gravel barrier coasts to determine how they respond to predicted climate change scenarios.

isardSAT will provide an historical dataset of coastal change generated with our SAR coastline processor (S. Savastano et al. 2023).
