SW Coastal Observatory

This is a new site which shares a wealth of coastal data, I hope it is repeated for other stretches of coastline.

It has been put together by the Plymouth Coastal Observatory, but covers most of the SW of England.
It shows a range of data, which can be interrogated, and maps alongside them. They include data on coastal erosion rates.
A Twitter feed here provides some more context for the project.

Mapping resource catalogue here.

Having just come back from the SW (more on that to come in future posts...) this was an interesting site to refer to when visiting Chesil Beach and the Isle of Portland.
