Coastal hazards: multi-hazard controls on flooding and erosion (CHAMFER) will:
- improve understanding of how weather-related multi-hazards control coastal flooding and erosion
- determine how these multi-hazards will respond to climate change and coastal management
- provide advice to stakeholders on coastal management and adaptation options.
In turn, this will support improved predictions of the consequences of the ‘perfect storm’ and the ability to develop effective and sustainable solutions.
CHAMFER is led by the National Oceanography Centre, in collaboration with the British Geological Survey and UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. It will run from 2022-2027. This £2.7million project is funded by the NERC National Capability Multi-Centre Science programme, which aims to enable an ambitious, integrated approach to large-scale research challenges.
