Coastal Heritage and Climate Change
Find out more about the impacts of climate change and storms on our coastal and underwater cultural heritage through a series of events taking places in Wicklow, Waterford, Fingal and also in Wales.
This research is part of the CHERISH (Climate, Heritage and Environments of Reefs, Islands and Headlands) project: a 5 year European Union-funded Ireland-Wales program, supported by the Heritage Council. The project aims to raise awareness and understanding of the past, present and near future impacts of climate change, storminess and extreme weather events on the rich cultural heritage of the Irish and Welsh regional seas and coast. The project employs innovative techniques such as drone survey and laser scanning to study some of the most iconic coastal locations in Ireland and Wales.
