Integrated COASTal sediment systems (iCOAST)

UCL Geography’s role in major NERC-funded project

Integrated COASTal sediment systems (iCOAST)

Professor Jon French and Dr Helene Burningham are part of a consortium that has secured a £2.8M grant under NERC's Coastal Sediment Systems programme. The consortium also includes the universities of Southampton, Oxford and Manchester, the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory and consultants HR Wallingford Ltd and Royal Haskoning.

This 4 year project will deliver new methods to analyse and forecast long-term coastal landform change. UCL's role is to develop a new systems modelling framework and to lead one of the 4 main work packages. This will be aimed at developing a new generation of meso-scale geomorphological models able to predict coastal change at time scales of decades to centuries.
