Managed retreat- essex marshes


low maintence

provides natural habitat

provides natural protection against coast

x low lying estuary area

x full force of water onto the coast

beach replenishement - mappleton


x no beach

x damages the landscape


1 Fastest eroding coastline 2m per year. Bedrock made of till. 

2*processes acting upon coastline- marine erosion, longshore drift

*3 rock groynes- were built out to sea to stop process of long shore drift , protect beach from erosion and moving up the beach

4 strave beaches further down from sediment- stop people from using it
