Descripción
Modelling a clay coast development with application to the Southern Great Lakes of North America. Coastal erosion and coastal instability, threatens property, businesses and life. Because of the great concentration of natural resources in coastal zones, it is imperative that coastal change is well understood to allow for effective management and, where necessary, engineering intervention. The development of cliff erosion predictive models is mainly limited to geomorphological data because of the complex interactions between coupled processes acting in time and space result in large-scale variations. There have been few reliable process-response models of cliff recession published (Trenhaile, 2009; Walkden and Hall, 2011). These have been based on functional relationships between the dominant physical processes covering the shoreface, beach and cliff or bluff, avoiding the geotechnical retreat mechanisms and behaviour within the cliff. Under this procedure, the resulting simulations of cliffs of differing behaviour can produce identical annual retreat characteristics despite the potential responses to a changing environment being unequal.
