United Kingdom

  • FUTURECOAST This project provided a major step forward in conceptualising the factors affecting coastal change. A 'behavioural systems' approach was adopted, which involved the identification of the different elements that make up the coastal structure and developing an understanding of how these elements interact on a range of both temporal and spatial scales.
  • Estuary research programme This project is investigating the tools which are available at present and is also developing new approaches, which cover a range of spatial and temporal scales, including large scale long term change
  • Flood risk management consortium A major UK project to develop new methodologies and tools for future flood risk management
  • Foresight project, UK
