Using big data to design resilient coastal cities

Project Details

Lead Supervisor: Andy Plater

Partners: University of Liverpool
External Partners: Marlan Maritime Technologies Ltd

Start Date: September 2019

Large datasets acquired using arrays of marine radar deployed in coastal locations are providing new insights on the response of coastal urban settings to factors that drive erosion and flood risk. Characterising coastal hinterlands using radar data reveals long-term, seasonal and event-based phenomena that support the design of resilient coastal communites in the future and the implementation of effective retrofitting and relocation of housing, utilities, transport and industrial/commercial infrastructure.
