Liverpool University in partnership with Formby High School announces next community lecture.
During 2017 Liverpool University and Formby High School introduced an interesting and welcome initiative to start a series of community talks on a range of topics. Already this year, there have been talks on 'An introduction to Shakespeare's World', 'The Archaeology of the Sefton Coast' and 'A brief History of Gravity'.
The University has just announced the next talk, this appears to be of a very high relevance and interest to most of Formby's householders, I suspect tickets will be in high demand and I suggest you book sooner rather than later.
The changing impacts of storms at our coast need to be carefully managed to safeguard communities, assets and infrastructure.
Within the UK shoreline management considers 3-time frames, present-day (0-20 years), medium-term (20-50 years) and long-term (50-100 years).
Understanding of changing flood and erosion hazards at the coast is required to make informed decisions to resource and plan new coastal protection schemes.
This talk will provide information about the processes that shape the coastlines in Liverpool Bay, with a focus on the extreme events that occurred during the winter 2013-2014.
The talk will be presented by Dr. Jennifer Brown
