Article
Sea-level rise due to climate change creates new risks of submersion in coastal areas that must be taken into account. Although these are long-term risks for 2100, it is important to anticipate possible consequences in order to identify the most vulnerable areas or issues and develop the appropriate adaptation policies. The aim of this paper is to...
Chapter
Natural coastal habitats play an important role in protecting coastal areas from sea water flooding caused by storm surge events. Many of these habitats, however, have been lost completely or degraded, reducing their ability to function as a natural flood defense. Once degraded, natural habitats can potently be destroyed by storm events, further th...

RESUME Dans un contexte de forte vulnérabilité du littoral face aux tempêtes, les données historiques constituent une information cruciale pour la prévention des risques et dommages. Le Réseau Tempête a objectif de mutualiser et homogénéiser les données d’observation issues des démarches de suivi existantes à l’échelle régionale. Il s’appuie pour c...

The French coast of the Gulf of Lion is a low-lying coastal plain. Along this microtidal coastline, where the mean wave climate is moderate, humans have strongly developed infrastructure and urbanized the coastal zone, disregarding the potential impact of extreme events. This results in an increase of coastal vulnerability to extreme storms. Major...

This results in an increase of coastal vulnerability to extreme storms with damage to harbor facilities, coastal tourism infrastructures, and urba...

SUBDUNE v0.6 is a very preliminary version of an exploratory model designed tocompute the sea level to the shoreline, combining the effects of various physics, from run-up to tides. It aims at providing an easy-to-use and quick way to estimate water elevation to the beach, assuming morphology is known. Combined with accurate beachdata, such as LIDA...

The study presented here describes a method for defining set-back lines along eroding coasts. The method (a mathematical model) combines the long-term shoreline retreat trend with short-term shoreline erosion (during storms). Simulations are carried out for 2030 and compared with the beach width to determine whether the shoreline is likely to shift...

In the 19th century, the expression “empty land ” applied extremely well to Camargue land ; in the 20th century that of “littoral of seizure” (territoire d’empoigne)” replaced it easily. The objective is to reconcile on this land, in integrated coastal zone management reasoning, the conservation of nature, landscape and traditions with tourism acti...

The « coastal squeeze », which basically results in less beach area and more concrete, fortunately does not yet concern the entire Mediterranean coast. It is thus important, while there are still coastal barrier islands, to study and understand the overwash phenomenon, in order to help anticipate the hydrodynamic and sedimentary processes that driv...

This paper analyses the impact of storms on shoreline retreat and overwash processes in a microtidal littoral barrier area. In order to determinate correlations between the action of storms waves and the morphodynamic responses of beaches, two similar types of beaches were studied: one in "Baie d'Aigues Mortes" and the other one in "Petite Camargue...

The « petite Camargue » coast is located between the Espiguette sandy spit -Port Camargue- on the west, and the -Rhône vif- on the East. It is a strip of 11 km of sandy beaches, a real mosaic of meadows (Sand dunes with Juniperus phoenica, Mediterranean salt steppes ...). However, on this listed site, the part of artificialized coastal areas has in...

Within the coastal survey programs currently developed in Corsica by BRGM and OEC, and in the Gulf of Lions by EID-Mediterranee, SMNLR and CG34, field experiments using Airborne hydrographic LIDAR were performed along the French Mediterranean coasts. This study presents an analysis of the results of this field testing to evaluate the capabilities o...

Assuming a 22 cm sea level rise by 2050, a map was elaborated, which shows the expected changes which probably will affect the barrier-lagoon system in the Vie and Pierre-Blanche area. The research was supported by the French Conservatoire du littoral and the Procter and Gamble Foundation. According to the linear regression method and using aerial...

Une cartographie prévisionnelle de l'évolution du système cordon littoral – lagune de Vic et de Pierre Blanche a été réalisée dans la cadre d'un programme lancé par le Conservatoire du Littoral. Elle a reposé sur un scénario d'élévation du niveau marin de + 22 cm d'ici 2050. L'originalité de la démarche employée tient dans l'association de deux typ...
