Long-term measurements and analysis lead to improved Nature Based Solutions
Long-term measurements and analysis can lead to improved Nature Based Solutions (NBS) due to better understanding of the natural dynamic in the coastal area. The presentation showed, that analysis of long-term transect data improves the system understanding in the framework of sustainable coastal protection management. Therefore, the value of long-term and high resolution monitoring emphasizes the need of ongoing measurement programs to support ‘Building with Nature’-Solutions and to evaluate their effectiveness. If the system is well known and natural positive behavior for coastal protection is detected to avoid unnecessary negative impacts by building hard structures, soft structures are an alternative regarding possible ecological and morphological impact.
