CASE STUDY 3.8: Web delivery portal for coastal hazards information
Our sea level and coastal hazards researchers are world leaders in the field and have long maintained a website to deliver sea-level rise information and data. While the website was popular with researchers and research users, it was very old and in need of a refresh to both update scientific content and make it more accessible to a wider audience.
We re-developed the website into a new portal that brings together information on an expanded range of coastal hazards – sea-level change, waves, coastal extremes and ocean energy – in formats and at technical levels suitable for a range of website visitors. The website describes processes driving coastal impacts across a range of time and space scales, presenting the most up-to-date research in this area.
The website is an important tool for communicating and providing access to Hub research in this area, increasing the uptake and use of this research across the community.
