Lessons from the 2010 floods on the Atlantic coast (Xynthia) and in the Var

11 Sep

Two natural disasters that occurred in 2010 are etched into our memories because of their
dramatic consequences.
Storm Xynthia reached the French coast during the night of 27-28 February 2010,
causing sudden and extensive marine flooding. The human toll was very heavy: 29 deaths concentrated
in La Faute-sur-Mer in the Vendée and 12 deaths in Charente-Maritime.

Brownsea Island Future Scenario Workshop

24 Jul

The Brownsea Island Future Scenario workshop looked at the effects of coastal and climate change on the Island and provided the opportunity for stakeholders of the Island, to discuss and develop ways to respond to these changes. The results of the workshop are available in the report and outcomes will help the National Trust and its partners to plan and prepare for future challenges such as erosion, sea level rise and more stormy weather.

Studland reminiscence exhibition

24 Jul

Travel through time with Studland’s Story of Coastal Change.

The coast at Studland is always changing – tides come in and out, covering the sand castles of the day and often revealing hidden treasures of the past. Storms carry off sand dunes that families once picnicked and sunbathed on and after swirling around in the Bay the sand comes back over time left in new places. It is not just the physical landscape that changes – coastal pastimes, industry, tourism and fashion all play a role in Studland’s Story of Coastal Change. Can you spot any of the changes?

Poole Bay, Poole Harbour and Wareham Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy

22 May

This Strategy Appraisal Report (StAR) presents the business case and implementation plan for the Poole Bay, Poole Harbour and Wareham Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (PWFCERM) Strategy (referred to as the Strategy).

Poole Harbour Timeline

20 Mar

Poole Harbour and the surrounding coast has changed dramatically over time. It has seen rivers of ice, huge storms and the wrenching of rock. Meanwhile tides and waves work tirelessly with changing sea level to scour and shape the coast and continue to do so today. This display panel highlights the changes that have occured from 125,000 BC to 2012.

LiCCo A-level Learning Pack

9 Mar

Following on from the successful primary and secondary learning packs, our A Level Geography learning and teaching programme, published in February 2015, provides both continuity and progression with these existing resources. It has been designed with a number of key objectives in mind. As a relevant and comprehensive case study of the impact of physical and human coastal processes, the implications of climate change and environmental management responses it will contribute to delivering a wide range of ‘Coasts’ content requirements across all examination specifications. Secondly, it has been written in the form of a research task involving fieldwork to investigate a hypothesis which can be used both to model the research process required for individual enquiries or be used as a whole group exercise if desired. The investigation is entirely self-supporting and so offers teachers considerable flexibility in terms of its use. For example, students could work through the investigation independently or alternatively teachers may wish to deliver some of the programme in a more formal and structured way.

Above all the LiCCo team hopes that this new resource will assist you in your teaching to enable young people to understand the key issues surrounding coastal change and to appreciate the process by which coastal managers respond to the challenges which arise in the short, medium and long term. The coastal managers of tomorrow are studying A Level Geography today.

We would be delighted to hear feedback from you after using these resources, so please get in touch using the contact details below.

Tourism Business Guide to Understanding Coastal Change

19 Jan

The ‘Tourism Business Guide to Understanding Coastal Change: Raising awareness and providing ideas for Poole Harbour and the surrounding area’ has been produced for businesses in the tourism industry in Poole and the surrounding area to help raise awareness of coastal change and how it might affect them. Different tourist sites are illustrated that highlight aspects of coastal change as well as providing some useful facts. It is helpful to have a greater understanding of the local environment and the role natural processes can play in benefiting or providing challenges within the tourism industry.

This booklet was commissioned by the Living with a Changing Coast project and compiled by the Dorset Coast Forum with contributions from coastal experts.

LiCCo Primary School Learning Pack

16 Jun

These educational materials are designed for key stage 2 (ages 7 to 11) and focus on the Exe Estuary and Poole Harbour. The pack is broken into a number of self contained learning enquiries to provide a local focus for the national curriculum. Issues covered include coastal environment, natural coastal processes which shape the coastline, climate change and weather, coastal management, flood risk, wildlife, habitats, use of the coast, stakeholders and how to adapt to coastal change. Resources have been compiled by a specialist schools education advisor and they make use of everything from map extracts to historic paintings and data sets to funny film clips.

The materials consist of a printed 120 page book and an accompanying DVD which contains everthing you need to deliver the enquiries in the classroom. These have been rolled out via free teacher training days in Devon and Dorset in May and June 2014. Many of the materials are locally tailored and so will be especially valuable to schools in these areas. However, there are some key messages and a good deal of content which can be widely applied and used by all primary teachers.

There’s a huge amount of information so we’ve broken it down into sections here for you to download :-

New report from National Trust – Adapting to change

13 May

A clear national strategy is urgently needed to help coastal areas adapt to the twin pressures of rising sea levels and extreme weather, according to a new report published by the National Trust.

As one of the UK’s biggest coastal owners, the Trust has seen many of its sites battered by the winter storms or hit hard by the high tides – with one, Birling Gap in East Sussex, experiencing seven years of erosion this winter.

These impacts have meant that the charity has had to fast-forward many decisions about land and buildings in its care, looking at how to adapt coastal places in the months ahead, rather than years or decades.

The report, ‘Shifting Shores – adapting to change’, highlights case studies of special places affected by the storms, including stretches of the wildlife-rich Norfolk coast at Brancaster and Blakeney Freshes, which saw significant changes as a result of a tidal surge in December, and the sand dunes at Murlough in Northern Ireland which suffered their worst erosion in living memory.

Simon Pryor, Natural Environment Director at the National Trust, said: “There is a natural inclination to want to defend the coastline with concrete, but our coastline is dynamic and the forces of nature that have formed it are part of its beauty.

“Hard defences will always have their place, but the winter storms that hit many coastal places hard have provided a valuable reminder that they have a limited life.

“Communities living on the coast, landowners, Government agencies and local and central Government all need to work together now to find solutions based around an adaptation approach to help future-proof the coastline.”

Climate Change & Geohazards in South West England

9 Dec

Written by Dr Erika Palin, Senior Climate Change Consultant at the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter this paper summarises the causes of climate change, both natural and man-made. This article is (c) Crown copyright 2012.

It outlines projections of changes in temperature, precipitation and sea level at global, UK and South-West England scales and summarises the models used to simulate our climate and make these projections.

The paper also explores some potential links between climate phenomena and geological/geomorphological hazards in South-West England.

Poole Harbour – leaflet

5 Dec

This leaflet explores the creation of Poole Harbour and its natural and man-made diversity; how coastal change is managed and how coastal communities could adapt to this change in the future.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 5th Report

5 Nov

The 5th IPCC Assessmnet report states that global mean sea level will continue to rise during the 21st century. Under all scenarios the rate of sea level rise will very likely exceed that observed during 1971–2010 due to increased ocean warming and increased loss of mass from glaciers and ice sheets.

The report states that the rate of rise could be 8-16mm per year by 2081-2100. Sea levels could be between 260 and 980mm higher than 2005 levels by 2100, depending on how much greenhouse gas we emit between now and then (the scenario used) and depending on the percentile figure taken.
