Objectives Assess the magnitude and significance of changes to the near shore sediment transport pathways as a result of the construction of the offshore windfarm at Scroby Sands. Provide field evidence to support and validate numerical modelling predictions of the effect of wind farm on the adjacent coastline.
Abstract Key customer purpose Improve guidance to the FEPA licensing process (in relation to windfarm developments) and assist Defra's responsibility for the sustainable developmentof the marine and coastal environment and in relation to coastal defence.
