Managing the existing and emerging threats from coastal flow slides (2021–2024)

This project aims to develop the first management strategies for coastal flow slides. This project expects to generate new knowledge on how flow slides are triggered, propagate inland and undermine structures. Expected outcomes include globally applicable novel models and management approaches developed by an interdisciplinary team of coastal and geotechnical engineers and coastal geomorphologist using innovative data. This is likely to provide significant benefits for planning and managing structures along coasts and bays against destructive flow slides. The project will enable the design and implementation of coastal works to protect existing structures against flow slides risks emerging with rising sea level.
