Monitoring the coastal change from space to mitigate erosion.
The goal of the Coastal Erosion project, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), is to develop innovative Earth Observation (EO) products/information in response to authoritative requirements from end-users in charge of Coastal Erosion studies and mitigation. The Coastal Change from Space project is an application project within the Science for Society slice of the 5th Earth Observation Envelope Programme (EOEP-5) of ESA. It shall prepare the ground for long-term exploitation of remote sensing from space by large user communities and is expected to provide substantial and concrete benefits to the targeted user communities when analysing the trends of coastal erosion and accretion as well as the status of coastal defence works, i.e. vulnerability of the coast.
