Covering the coastline of central-southern England between Lyme Regis (Dorset) and
Shoreham-By-Sea (West Sussex), this 2004 web-enabled report constitutes a thorough
revision of the original Sediment Transport Study commissioned by SCOPAC in 1990.
Much additional research and information had been published since 1990 and the 2004
study incorporated all material collated from a comprehensive search of sources and
by contact with relevant organisations.
The Sediment Transport Study has been an invaluable tool in development of the second
round Shoreline Management Plans given that a key focus was on coastal processes
and managing risk. SCOPAC are grateful to David Carter, Dr Malcolm Bray and Professor
Janet Hooke for their hard efforts in producing such an informative and user-friendly
piece of work.
The Sediment Transport project relied heavily upon the SCOPAC Sediment Transport
Bibliographic Database (Version 5, 2002) to identify the sources of information that
have subsequently been reviewed to produce this study.
