PhD Title: "Modeling the impacts of climate change on coastal and estuarine habitats"


The aim of my PhD is to evaluate the potential of reduced complexity spatial landscape models as a tool for evaluating meso-scale impacts of sea-level rise on estuarine environments  in the UK. It is hoped that this study will serve to demonstrate the potential of reduced complexity approaches as a computationally efficient yet robust means of predicting broad-scale changes in coastal and estuarine morphology and habitat characteristics. Moreover, it is envisaged that such modeling tools may also have an important role in the visualisation and communication of coastal change and alternative coastal futures to wider, non-specialists, audiences.
