The fifth SCOPAC workshop in the series "Andy’s Workshops: A Problem Shared" was held at the National Oceanography Centre on 10th January 2014.

Approximately 40 delegates - coastal engineers, scientists, planners, search and rescue officers, consultants and contractors attended the workshop, which commenced with Professor Andy Bradbury providing background information on the basic principles of landsliding and cliff falls.

The talks focused on the following aspects of landsliding and cliff falls:

Groundwater triggers, monitoring, engineering, emergency response, funding, responsibilities, empowering communities and building resilience.

Case studies were presented from Dorset, the Isle of Wight, Barton-on-sea and across Europe.

The workshop came to a close with a question and answers session, whereby delegates submitted a question together with a photo relating to Coastal Cliff Instability.  

Coastal Cliff Instability Workshop, January 2014

The aim of the "Andy’s Workshops: A Problem Shared" series is for officers to share best practice and to assist operating authorities with basic skills development. The target audience is both experienced engineers (to share knowledge) and those new to or about to join the industry.
