Coastal steepening potentially presents managers with a range of issues related to the past, present and future management of the coast, since where steepening is occurring there is likely to be enhanced potential for coastal erosion and loss of coastal sediment. This report aims to assess the historical changes to the positions of MHWS and MLWS as plotted from geo-rectified digital maps of a systematic sample of beaches selected from around the Scottish coast.
