We are pleased to invite abstracts to the following EGU2022 GM6.7: Coastal zone geomorphologic interactions: natural versus human-induced driving factors

Conveners: Margarita Stancheva, Andreas Baas, Hannes Tõnisson, Guillaume Brunier, Giorgio Anfuso

Coastal zones worldwide face numerous pressures of anthropogenic impact, including urbanization, pollution, and resource extraction. Associated problems include coastal erosion, often aggravated by hard engineering responses, and pollution of waters and sediments affecting ecology and human health.

This session explores the interactions between natural geomorphic processes and human interventions in the coastal zone. Topics include work on predicting shoreline change and the effects of human activities on the coast, including coastal vulnerability to natural and human-related hazards, coastal and environmental sensitivity classifications and risk assessments, impacts on coastal dune fields, eco-restoration and re-building of coastal environments, Marine Spatial Planning, and Integrated Coastal Management.

The session is sponsored by the Commission on Coastal Systems (CCS) of the International Geographical Union (http://www.igu-coast.org/).

The deadline for abstract submission is 12 January 2022, 13:00 CET; for those applying for EGU Roland Schlich travel support, the deadline is 1 December 2021, 13:00 CET.
