The CoFEE project is part of NERC FREE Research Programme to predict floods minutes to weeks and seasons to decades ahead. The broad project aim is to improve our understanding of how the coast will respond to changes in climate, sea-level, storm and wave frequency in the future such that we can make informed decisions as to how to manage the consequences of these changes. The key elements that are being focussed upon are changes in coastal flood risk and changes in shorelines, beach profiles and coastal habitats. The detailed outputs of the project will be defined in collaboration with the end-users of this information. The project will use the Sefton Coast as a case study but the outputs will include the presentation of results in a generic format so that the knowledge gained can be applied elsewhere.
