About this Research Topic
As sea-level rises due to climate change, providing salient information to support coastal risk management and adaptation is becoming a critical issue for numerous coastal communities and economic activities. The way this information is produced is now evolving rapidly as new observation and modeling capabilities are becoming available. This includes numerous multi-scale, multi-platform, terrestrial, airborne and spatial remote sensing data, which can be combined with numerical modeling tools to improve our capabilities to reproduce past coastal evolutions and disasters, as well as to anticipate the future (e.g., Copernicus satellite and climate services). The objective of this Research Topic is to present new research supporting coastal engineering and risk management, land use planning, integrated coastal zone management and coastal adaptation. This Research Topic aims to promote submissions using observations (e.g., in-situ, aerial, remote sensing) and models to anticipate future coastal risks. The specialties cover remote sensing, mathematical methods and modeling, spatial information technologies, artificial intelligence, social engineering and environmental data management. Academic and industrial contributions are accepted.
