Project: EU Commission

Description

The vulnerability of our coastlines is expected to increase as sea levels rise over the coming decades. This project will undertake a prototype-scale experiment to investigate the response of a dynamic coastal structure which mimics natural composite beaches to slow coastal recession as sea levels rise.

The experiment will take place in August and September 2017
