Erosion of soft coastal clis represents a signicant risk to coastal development and land use. Around the world large sums have been invested in attempts to resist the loss of clitop properties, services and infrastructure and to reduce the risks to the public. In England, for example, there are some 860 km of coast protection works, with over 20 million spent each year on maintaining and improving these defences, and providing new schemes.
