Summary

This dataset contains projections of coastal cliff-retreat rates and positions for future scenarios of sea-level rise (SLR). Projections were made using numerical and statistical models based on field observations such as historical cliff retreat rate, submarine slope, coastal cliff height, and mean annual wave power. Read metadata and methods carefully.
