University of Cambridge, Cambridge Coastal Research Unit, United Kingdom

Acronym: UCAM-CCRU

Country: United Kingdom

Role in RISC-KIT: The main tasks of UCAM-CCRU within RISC-KIT will be (i) data capture and input to WP1; (ii) contribute with expertise on ecosystem services to WP2 (ecosystem vulnerability indicators) and WP4 (PRP measures); (iii) aid model development in WP3 (modelling energy dissipation over saltmarsh platforms); (iv) set up the CRAF and EWS for the North Norfolk case study site in WP5; (v) contribute, with UK Environment Agency associate partner, to results dissemination in WP6.

Description: The University of Cambridge is one of the world's oldest universities and leading academic centres, and a self-governed community of scholars. Its reputation for outstanding academic achievement is known world-wide and reflects the intellectual achievement of its students, as well as the world-class original research carried out by the staff of the University and the Colleges.

The “Cambridge Coastal Research Unit” is a global leader in the monitoring and modelling of wave energy dissipation by intertidal wetlands. We are thus currently involved in a major international Nature Conservancy led review on the erosion and flood risk reduction function of coastal ecosystems.

Lead person: Tom Spencer

Expert on coastal geomorphology, hydrodynamics, sedimentation and ecological processes in natural and re-created tidal wetlands, estuarine hydro- and morpho-dynamics and coastal zone management.
