The University of Plymouth Coastal Processes Research Group (CPRG) in partnership with the National Network of Regional Coastal Monitoring Programmes (NNRCMP) have announced the first UK Coastal Research Conference to be held in July 2023 in Plymouth.
This conference will be to showcase and celebrate the coastal research being undertaken within the UK. Principally focused on UK academics, organizations and institutions working on UK coastal science, they also welcome research using overseas case studies that are of relevance to the UK. The conference will highlight the current state of knowledge and the research that is being undertaken to address coastal issues.
- Coastal processes in the UK – focused on process-based research of coastal systems
- Innovation in coastal research – developments in the field of techniques, methodology, instrumentation and sensors to capture and analyze coastal data
- Coastal data access and applications – presentation of UK coastal datasets and projects, e.g. sources beyond the National Monitoring Programme to promote collaboration and wider access
- Applied research and FCERM (flood and coastal erosion risk management) – application of science in active coastal management projects and partnerships.
They envisage the conference to start a wider conversation about national coastal research strategies and coastal knowledge gaps to inform researchers, practitioners and end-users to help promote sustainable management of our coast.
