DREAM PhD researcher Al Rumson has had a new paper published in the Journal Marine Policy. Entitled, ‘Coastal risk adaptation: the potential role of accessible geospatial Big Data’, the publication provides an evaluation of the benefits modern Big Data techniques offer to coastal management, highlighting the need for the inclusion of high resolution data in wide-scale coastal risk analysis. The paper considers how Big Data approaches enable Decision Support Systems to access and analyse multiple data themes, drawing together patterns and interactions of environmental and societal factors, and concluding how geospatial Big Data analysis promises a potential transformation of coastal planning.
