  • Resilience and vulnerability : coastal dynamics or Dutch dikes?
  • Applied ecology ; Coastal dynamics ; Coastal environment ; Coastal management ; Coastal protection ; Concept ; Dune ; Netherlands (The) ; Sea level ; Vulnerability
  • This paper describes coastal resilience as a measure of the extent to which a coast is able to respond to external pressures without losing actual or potential functions. Coastal resilience has morphological, ecological and socio-economic components
  • , each of which represents another aspect of the coastal system's adaptive capacity to pertubations. A recent study explores possibilities of enhancing coastal resilience in the Netherlands by allowing managed retreat in areas where it is environmentally

  • Questions of coastal protection and the human response to sea-level rise in Ireland and Britain
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal management ; Coastal protection ; Concept ; England ; Environment ; Global change ; Ireland ; Sea level ; United Kingdom
  • Aménagement du littoral ; Changement global ; Concept ; England ; Environnement ; Irlande ; Littoral ; Niveau marin ; Protection du littoral ; Royaume-Uni
  • This discussion aims at placing the problems and prospects for effective coastal management in Ireland, and more widely in the British Isles as a whole, in the context of the likely physical environmental changes that might be expected around our
  • coasts into the next century. In particular, the current approaches to coastal management and the lack of coherent national policies in this field are evaluated.

  • The study site in Northeast Greenland is located between 75°-73°30N. It lies in the high arctic climate zone with continuous permafrost. The AA. focuse on the relation between the various types of coastal environments and the location of Thule Inuit
  • settlements, especially the winter settlements. The geology and geomorphology of the coastal environments are presented and the dominant coastal and arctic processes with its seasonal variability are summarized. Thereafter, the suitability of various coastal
  • environments towards the settlement requirements is discussed and preferred locations for settlements are shown. The Thule culture abandoned Northeast Greenland about 1850 AD, and apart from settlements on basalt capes, most of the winter settlement sites

  • Ecological and geographical characteristics of the coastal zone of the Black Sea
  • Black Sea environment
  • Black Sea ; Coastal environment ; Ecology ; Geosystem ; Land use ; Rill wash;Runoff
  • The coastal zone of the Black Sea is viewed as marine terrestrial geosystem. This article largely treats the terrestrial part of the coastal zone of the Black Sea and provides information on the landscapes, the structure of land use
  • Coastal foredune development and vertical displacement
  • Perspectives in coastal geomorphology of Western Crete, Greece
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal sedimentation ; Dune ; Holocene ; Neotectonics ; Sand ; Sea level ; Sediment budget ; Vertical movement
  • This paper will attempt to identify some underlying principles in coastal dune development and relate these to the opportunity to use mutiple dune features as a discriminatory tool in the general field of neotectonics investigations. Specifically
  • , through an understanding of the developmental history of coastal dunes, it may be possible to relate multiple episodes of dune development to conditions associated with vertical displacements of the coastal zone.
  • The countermeasures against coastal hazards in Japan
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal erosion ; Coastal protection ; Honshu ; Human impact ; Japan ; Monsoon ; Natural hazards ; Sand ; Tropical cyclone ; Tsunami
  • Most of the coastal lowlands are now so intensively used that a large proportion of the Japanese coast has been artificially modified. Therefore, coastal countermeasures against several kinds of natural and man-induced hazards are the serious
  • problems for Japanese. In this report, the A. will introduce some typical cases of countermeasures against coastal hazards in Japan.
  • Short and medium-term evolution of a coastal sector in Cadiz, SW Spain
  • Aerial photography ; Coastal environment ; Coastal erosion ; Coastal geomorphology ; Coastal sedimentation ; Methodology ; Photointerpretation ; Seasonal variation ; Spain
  • This paper is a combined study on the medium and short-term evolution of the littoral between Chipiona and Rota (SW Spain). The analysis of coastal evolution over a period of 24 years was carried out using 6, well temporally spaced, photogrammetric
  • flights. In conclusion, this littoral recorded a balance between erosion and accretion at short-term scale and coastal retreat at medium-term.
  • Improving coastal resource management. A strategy to integrate impacts
  • Aménagement du littoral ; Environnement ; Gestion des ressources ; Ghum ; Géographie humaine ; Impact ; Littoral ; Ressource naturelle ; Théorie
  • Coastal resource management strategies sometimes fail when they do not integrate development impacts into the existing ad hoc approach to coastal management. This paper outlines a set of strategies coastal developers may take when confronted
  • by the need for change. Because a development and its coastal impact area constitute a connected system, the promotive strategy sees the development-impact area as interdependent. Such a strategy can turn impacts into an expansion of developer concern
  • by promoting coastal impacts as a new pathway to greater coastal conservation and management opportunities.
  • A macroscale analysis of coastal steepening around the coast of England and Wales
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal erosion ; Coastal management ; Coastal protection ; England and Wales ; Geographical information system ; Land utilisation ; Slope gradient ; United Kingdom
  • The aim of this paper is to build on existing background research into coastal steepening and advance it through GIS interrogation of the data collected in the recently completed Future coast project (Burgess et al. 2001). The primary aim
  • is to assess the extent to which coastal steepening has taken place around England and Wales.
