The subjectivity of climate change in the island. The case of Saint Pierre and Miquelon
Islands are the first to be affected by climate change (CC): their small size, generally low altitudes and external dependence increase their vulnerability to natural, particularly coastal hazards, aggravated by CC (Bertrand and Richard, 2011). Nowadays, the introduction of adaptation to CC is criti...
Coastal erosion as an element of persuasion of municipalities towards a more sustainable path: the municipalities of Carry-le-Rouet and Biarritz
The coastline is a very popular area that is facing increasingly frequent attacks in front of the sea, leading to a backsliding of the coastline. Almost a quarter of the French coastline is subject to erosion. Faced with this phenomenon, the majority of municipalities use a method of combating erosi...
Alexandre Hogue: dust bowl painter
During the 1930s, Great Depression, repeated droughts, dust storms and erosion weakened farmers in the Great Plaines. More than two million will leave their farms for California. It was this social, economic and climate phenomenon that the American painter Alexandre Hogue chose to paint in a series...
Climate change and geomorphological dynamics of the Breton coasts. Lessons for responsible management of the intertwining of spatial and temporal scales
In France, the strong storms of recent decades and their impact on coastlines have led to the emphasis being placed on the causal links that may exist between climate change and the current trends in the coastlines subject to erosion and submersion. However, it seems necessary to put into perspectiv...
Swash Bar Effects On The Response Of A Large Barrier-Spit Terminus To Extreme Wave Climate: The Cap Ferret Example
International audience The succession of severe storms in the North-Eastern Atlantic during the 2013-2014 winter has generated exceptional erosion along the Gironde coast (SW France). Meanwhile, at the Southern extremity of this 110-km long sandy coastal stretch, the Cap Ferret barrier-spit terminus...
Coastal Erosion and Public Archaeology in Western France: News from the ‘Alert’ Project
The communication of the risk of coastal erosion in Portugal: a global problem, a local trouble
International audience In the past two decades a set of instruments has been devised by the Portuguese authorities to handle the issue of coastal erosion. We argue that this legal apparatus not only lacks the internal integration necessary for its effectiveness, but it also fails to recognise the wa...
Dynamics of the Estuarine Turbidity Maximum Zone from Landsat-8 Data: The Case of the Maroni River Estuary, French Guiana
International audience The estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM) zone occurs in river estuaries due to the effects of tidal dynamics, density-driven residual circulation and deposition/erosion of fine sediments. Even though tropical river estuaries contribute proportionally more to the sediment supply o...
Impact of coastal erosion in African coastal cities: from procrastination of public authorities to forced migration of the most precarious. In the case of Cotonou, Benin
Situated in the Gulf of Guinea, the Beninese coastline has been subject — on some chainsaws — to fairly rapid erosion in recent decades. This coastal erosion is currently mainly due to human activities, including sedimentary disturbances caused by the construction of various dams, including the Nang...
Marine erosion and its effects on archaeological remains in the Iroise Sea: example of the impact of the storm of march 2008 on the islands of Kemenez, Ledenez Vihan and Ledenez Vraz (Le Conquet, Finistère, France)
International audience The March 2008 storm, whose effects were felt on all the Atlantic coasts of Europe, had a particularly strong impact onthe west of Finistère. In some places, the coastline retreated by several metres, thus uncovering some archaeologicaldeposits. The island of Kemenez and the i...
Acceptabilité des relocalisations des biens face à l’élévation du niveau de la mer : perceptions de nouveaux dispositifs de gouvernance du foncier
International audience Face aux risques d’érosion littorale et de submersion marine aggravés par l’élévation du niveau de la mer, de nouvelles mesures, visant à réduire la vulnérabilité des économies littorales par la relocalisation des biens les plus exposés, sont préconisées. Cependant, elles font...
Visualizing Coastal Risks in the Fraser River Delta
Sea level rise (slr) is one of the most existential challenges facing contemporary societies. The potential risks posed by slr involve inundation, population displacement, coastal erosion, wetland loss, saltwater intrusion, and rising water tables. This will have major implication for urban deltas a...
Coastline Change Modelling Induced by Climate Change Using Geospatial Techniques in Togo (West Africa)
Seawalls as a response to coastal erosion and flooding: a case study from Grande Comore, Comoros (West Indian Ocean)
Many coasts are eroding. In the Comoros, as in many other small island developing states (SIDS), communities frequently respond to coastal erosion by building seawalls—yet seawalls and other coastal defence structure are controversial, especially in a SIDS context, where they typically are poorly de...
Study of solutions for the suitability of the beach in the dyed stoves (T.M. Melilla)
[ES] This study of solutions aims to analyse the problem in the study area and subsequently make a diagnosis and provide an adequate response to address these problems. The first would be solid coastal transport, which leads to a regression of the coastline. In addition, a solution is offered to the...
Field and laboratory measurements of sediment erodibility: A comparison
The erosion of fine-grained cohesive sediments is a ubiquitous phenomenon in marine and estuarine environments. Critical shear stress and erosion rates are predominant variables in transport mechanics. This study presents a comparison between in situ and laboratory measurements of sediment erodibili...
Study of two carbonifer formations of the Southern Morvan as part of the hercynian orogenesis (Creusot Region, Saône-et-Loire).
18 pages National audience in the creusotin region, two sedimentary formations, one of uncertain age, Devonian, Dévono-Dinantien, Dinantien, according to the authors, and the other of Upper Stéphanien, were studied. The first named Training (Fm) for the algae is bordered to the north by the Uchon gr...
The process of preparing the construction and erosion of the Lave deltas formed by the Kilauea volcano (pu’ u’u ‘O’o-Kupaianaha, Hawai’)
The genesis of the Lave deltas, which are constructed when leaf streams reach the ocean, is preceded by an initial stage in which a reservoir of hydroclastic debris is gradually being built. The winds build on this seat a narrow subaerial bench, limited by the former cliff, which is at the same time...
Extraordinary sequence of severe weather events in the late-nineteenth century
Between 1883 and 1898, 24 intense tropical cyclones and extra tropical cyclones directly impacted on the southern Queensland and northern New South Wales coasts, with at least 200 fatalities in what was then a sparsely populated area. These events also caused record floods and rainfall, for example...
Long-term ice-rich permafrost coast sensitivity to air temperatures and storm influence: lessons from Pullen Island, Northwest Territories, Canada
Response of erosive mechanisms to climate change is of mounting concern on Beaufort Sea coasts, which experience some of the highest erosion rates in the Arctic. Collapse of intact permafrost blocks and slumping within sprawling retrogressive thaw complexes are two predominant mechanisms that manife...
Urban occupation of coastal areas: risk management and management initiatives in a self-propelled patagonics community (Playa Magagna, Chubut, Argentina)
Playa Magagna is a small urban settlement for summer and weekend recreation, built on a typical sea accumulation plan on the Patagonian coast, which is heavily influenced by marine erosion and mass removal. This article describes how inhabitants have sought to mitigate the effect of both forced func...
Coastal vulnerability index for the Turkish coast, Mexico
The rise in sea levels is an extreme event that will severely affect low coastal areas, as is the case with Tabasco. At national level, the tobacco coast is among the most vulnerable to such an event, so the degree of vulnerability needs to be estimated locally. Therefore, this study estimated this...
Morphodynamic analysis of coastal and estuarine environments in Goiana municipality, northern coastline of Pernambuco State
