Approaches for protecting our coastal areas have traditionally relied on the development and ongoing maintenance of ‘hard’ defences. However, the longer-term sustainability of coastal flood management that is underpinned by such defences is increasingly being questioned both in terms of dealing with climate change and in the environmental/ ecological consequences and associated losses of biodiversity that comes with these structural defence lines in coastal areas.||Funding Details:||European Commission - European Regional Development Fund||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Copernicus||Copyright (published version):||2020 the Authors||Keywords:||Wave overtopping; Artificially roughened seawalls; EurOtop codes||DOI:||10.5194/egusphere-egu2020-6162||Other versions:||https://www.egu2020.eu/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||EGU Conference 2020, Online, 4-8 May 2020||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ie/|
