Abstract

Prediction of possible cliff erosion at some future date is fundamental to coastal planning and shoreline management, for example to avoid development in vulnerable areas. Historically, to predict cliff recession rates deterministic methods were used. More recently, recession predictions have been expressed in probabilistic terms. However, to date, only simplistic models have been developed. We consider the cliff erosion along the Holderness Coast. Since 1951 a monitoring program has been started in 118 stations along the coast, providing an invaluable, but often missing, source of information.We build hierarchical random effect models, taking account of the known dynamics of the process and including the missing information.
