Title

Future proofing sea defences to enhance biodiversity

Organizers

Alice Hall  and Sue Hull
Bournemouth University, UK

Abstract

Ocean sprawl, the addition of manmade artificial structures within the marine environment is having a significant effect on the marine environment. Ecological enhancement creates multifunctional structures which perform their primary engineering function but also provide suitable habitat for marine life. This session aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to present and discuss existing ecological enhancement schemes and develop improved methods for future schemes via sharing of good practice. This session would be highly relevant to coastal engineers and the coastal scientific community. The session will include a keynote presentation from several experts on existing schemes followed by a workshop evaluating current enhancement schemes and promoting best practice.

A sign-up form will be available nearer the time of the conference for registered delegates to complete if they would like to attend one of the above workshops as part of the ECSA58 – EMECS 13 Conference.
