Coastal dunes’ behaviour in extreme weather conditions
Climate change affects our planet in many ways. Extreme weather phenomena as well as the rise of sea level are among the most severe consequences. Coastal dunes along the European side of the Atlantic have emerged as the first natural line of protection against flooding and coastal erosion. To elaborate tools for effective short- and long-term coastal management, it is necessary to understand and predict coastal dunes’ behaviour in relation to extreme storms and sea level rise. The EU-funded ERoDES project will conduct field observations to predict coastal dune behaviour in extreme weather conditions and extreme sea level rise. These will be carried out along with use of a process-based and a reduced-complexity model and using datasets from different survey methods (Satellite remote sensing, airbone LiDAR, RTK-GPS, etc).
