The Shingle Beach Transport Project was set up as a collaborative project between a number of research groups to make use of recently developed measurement techniques to provide new field information and to develop improved predictive techniques at a range of spatial and time scales. The work was undertaken between 1996 and 1999, and was funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) and the Environment Agency (the Agency). This paper sets out the aims and objectives of the research, the participants and methods, briefly describes some of the key results and outlines plans for further research. The paper also introduces a new cross-shore transport model being developed under an associated MAFF research programme.
