Long term dynamics of interdependent infrastructure systmes


Lead researcher

Professor Robert Nicholls

Research interests

  • long-term coastal engineering and management
  • the issues of coastal impacts and adaptation to climate change, with an emphasis on sea-level rise
  • the assessment of the future of deltaic areas, which are the most threatened coastal setting in the coming century
Other researchers
