HR Wallingford: Expertise on Estuarine and Coastal Managed Sites

Managed realignment is a relatively new soft engineering strategy undertaken to provide sustainable coastal defences, re-create intertidal habitats or a combination of these two aims, according to hrwallingford.com.

More than fifty managed realignment sites have been created since the first in 1991.

HR Wallingford’s Marie Pendle has been comparing the predictions made about individual managed realignment sites during the planning stage with the results from monitoring programmes at each site. As part of this MSc project, her aim was to evaluate whether current practice is getting full benefit from previous monitoring effort and to see whether the monitoring effort had been appropriate.

Six managed realignment sites on the East coast of England were chosen for study.
