Abstract

Shore platform erosion is considered a driving
mechanism for cliff recession on many rocky coasts and, in
the vicinity of sea defence structures, a threat to their stability,
yet the spatial pattern of platform erosion, as well as the rate of
lowering, is poorly documented. Measurements based on
techniques such as the micro-erosion metre or laser scanner,
though highly accurate for short time scales and specific
locations, are difficult to extrapolate in space and time. They
also fail to record mesoscale changes such as block removal.
This paper describes a technique to quantify spatial and
temporal changes and presents first results.
