Taking the stretch of coastline from Flamborough Head down to Spurn Point, this resource looks at the causes, effects and management of coastal erosion. It shows the different landforms created along the coast, the issues they create and the different ways in which they are managed, including hard and soft engineering. It then goes on to evaluate the impact of different management techniques and explores the concept of physical interdependence of environments. The resource talks to local residents, businesses, farmers, visitors and politicians and asks is this coastline sustainable?
