Coastal Processes

Description

The Crown Estate commissioned HR Wallingford to help improve its knowledge of the complicated coastal processes at East Lane, Bawdsey and its immediate surroundings in order to help inform a coastal management option appraisal for the frontage. The study was carried out using data analysis and numerical modelling. The work completed within this study involved three interrelated tasks, namely a desktop review of past shoreline, profile and seabed changes, a wave assessment to derive a set of nearshore time-series (which are available as a dataset to download) and numerical modelling of shoreline evolution to investigate how the longshore shingle transport and the plan-shape of the beaches are likely to change in the future.
