© Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015. All rights reserved.Coastal planners and managers face a wide range of challenges around the world during the twenty-first century. These include geomorphological, climatic, and socio-economic drivers of change, their interaction and the societal and governance issues that they raised. The interplay between these challenges motivated the Tyndall Centre for Climate Research's Coastal Research Programme. Assessing the impacts of multiple scale drivers and possible responses is problematic, yet failure to do so can limit the utility of the analysis - or lead to undesirable outcomes that are a consequence of thinking too narrowly about a problem. To define and analyse coastal problems in a comprehensive manner, an interdisciplinary team of researchers was assembled. Embracing natural, social and engineering sciences, this team engaged in the development of an integrated assessment, called the Tyndall Coastal Simulator, which was applied and demonstrated in East Anglia in the UK. However, the approach could be applied widely, as discussed at the end of the book.
