Project Title: Combining physical coastal change indicators with socio-economic projections to estimate the impacts and risks of climate change along UK coastlines

Project Description:

The UK coastline varies significantly in terms of morphology and human use and is renowned for its distinctive natural beauty and diverse ecosystems. Some stretches of UK coastline are amongst the fastest eroding in Europe, which has led to property loss and threatened natural capital (including SSSIs and AONBs). While several worldwide studies have evaluated coastal vulnerability based on these changes, there is limited research integrating the impact of socio-economic variables. This aspect is particularly pertinent to the UK as it undergoes a current period of rapid socio-economic change.

The proposed PhD project will build on this research by integrating Met Office UKCP18 climate and sea level rise scenarios and socio-economic projections up to 2100. The project will use numerical modelling and data analysis to generate updated indicators of coastal vulnerability and assess the potential impact and risk to UK coastlines. Working with industry and governmental stakeholders, the project will also explore the potential impact on key infrastructure, generate vulnerability maps and publish a policy workbook.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work with British Geological Survey at Nottingham (UK) and gain unique and practical experience in the collection of coastal vulnerability data from the ground level.

The successful applicant will also part of the Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Central Lancashire, which supports fully funded PhD studentships on an annual basis and provides bespoke training and development opportunities.
