In order to make effective operational decisions about how to manage the coastline, it is critical to monitor the way in which coastal processes such as waves and tides affect the shoreline. Data collected from monitoring is also extremely useful for predicting how the coastline might change in the future. The ESCP uses cutting-edge technology to collect information and data about our shoreline. We then utilise this data to measure the amount of sediment on our beaches, and record how they are changing.
New academic and practical research projects looking at the drivers of coastal change are also extremely important in helping us make day-to-day coastal management decisions. For example, the ESCP have developed a ground-breaking sediment tracer pebble study designed to identify sediment drift direction and rates. We also work hard with universities to support research initiatives that utilise data along our frontage. In addition, our team of specialist coastal scientists and surveyors carry out our coastal process work, analysing and mapping the data we collect.
