Coastal erosion

Coastal erosion

The coastline is moving

The south-west coastline of the Isle of Wight, UK is suffering from erosion and landslides. Problematic sites were identified and the magnitude of movements measured by InSAR, providing years of data at a fraction of the cost of in-situ monitoring over the same length of coastline.

Highlights

  • Perform PS & SBAS DInSAR analysis to measure displacements.

  • Identify movement trends.

  • Pinpoint areas of concern (accelerating movements).
