Abstract

Coastal developments with multi-decadal to centurial life-spans present a problem to regulators, developers, consultants, local interest groups and, indeed, applied scientists - How to assess the coastal hazards that might be associated with such developments? Over such timescales, the regional and local hydrodynamic and sedimentary processes will be fundamental controls for most other "environmental" issues, and extrapolation of hydrodynamic models to predict geomorphology is inappropriate. We draw on work evaluating coastal geo-hazards faced through the lifetime of potential new major coastal power stations, covering the phases of design, construction, operation and decommissioning. Our purpose was to forecast the 'likely' route(s) of coastal change, and thus develop a 100-year strategic view of coastal geo-hazards.
