Sediment Transport Study Update 2012

The SCOPAC Sediment Transport Study area spans the coastline between Start Point, Devon and Beachy Head, East Sussex and is broken down into 27 sediment units.

To view the sediment transport information for an area, simply click on one of the sediment units marked on the map below; each presents a detailed map illustrating sediment type, direction, volume, transport mechanism and reliability of information for that unit. Please refer to the User Guide for further details.

The supporting information is based on a review of literature from the SCOPAC Bibliographic Database and Regional Coastal Monitoring Programme data analysis up to December 2012.
