Scottish storm wave study to protect coastal areas



Britain’s coastal defences could be helped to withstand powerful storms triggered by climate change, a study of wave dynamics by a Scottish university shows.
In the first study of its kind, researchers at the University of Edinburgh developed a model showing how the millions of tonnes of water inside large waves collide with cliffs, seawalls and buildings.
Improving sea walls could help limit loss of life and damage to property as coastal waters become stormier over coming years, say the findings, published in the Royal Society journal Proceedings A.
