About the Project

Capacity of Unmanaged Realignments To (Re-) create Coastal Habitats And Ecosystem Services 

Duration: 12 months  

The student will research the future management of Unmanaged Realignment sites. These are areas of coastal lands which have been accidentally flooded but where tidal inundation is maintained in order to provide ecosystem services, including the provisioning of valuable natural coastal habitats, carbon sequestration, and coastal flood risk reduction. Only ten sites are known across the UK, and these are undervalued partly due to a lack of reliable information.
