The CHERISH project (Climate, Heritage and Environments of Reefs, Islands and Headlands) explores Climate Change and Coastal Heritage.
Climate change introduces new challenges to how coasts are managed. Changing coastal processes will impact sedimentation, altering ongoing erosion and accretion. The Geological Survey has been applying state of the art methodologies to investigate change in these important environments. The project supports specialist organisations in Ireland and Wales to employ cutting-edge technologies to analyse coastal and island archaeology and heritage sites most affected by climate change, coastal erosion, storminess and rising sea levels.
For Innovation week (18-23 October), the Geological Survey Ireland's contribution to the innovative CHERISH project was explored in a new video.
