Abstract

This report is a review of the coastline between St Abb's Head, Berwickshire and Tees Bay, Cleveland. In it are described the various natural and man-made processes which affect the behaviour of this particular stretch of Britain's shoreline. The report includes a description of the major coastal defences, areas of erosion and accretion and various other aspects of beach behaviour. Information is given about winds, waves and tidal currents and how these affect the formation of the coast and its future behaviour. Various stretches of coastline which for coastal engineering purposes can be treated as independent or semi-dependent cells are also identified. This report is the first of a series covering the whole coastline of England and Wales which Hydraulics Research are carrying out for the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food.
