This review of modelling approaches to long-term coastal morphodynamics starts with the briefest introduction to coastal morphodynamics and its effects on society. Different tools are needed to predict the response of the coastline at different scales, but they can all be ascribed to a limited number of model types, which are then listed and introduced in separate sections. The traditional approach is to use a model to make a deterministic prediction of future morphology (or the position of a morphological feature). However, an increasing awareness of the importance of probability and risk has led to an increase in the use of models for making stochastic predictions.
