Version 6, 2012.  Channel Coastal Observatory, David Carter and the University of Portsmouth

A web-enabled bibliographic database comprising in excess of 5,700 references to relevant shoreline management publications for the 400 kilometre frontage of the SCOPAC region.

The database was originally compiled for SCOPAC in 1989 by the Department of Geography, University Portsmouth and was updated in 1992, 1995, 1998 and 2002.

In 2012 the database was updated by the Channel Coastal Observatory in collaboration with David Carter, working as an independent consultant, and Dr Malcolm Bray from the University of Portsmouth.

The database provides a comprehensive list of reports and publications relating to coastal defence in the SCOPAC area. It provides reference details, searchable keywords, abstract and details of where original copies are held for all published and unpublished material, which it has been possible to obtain or consult.

The database is searchable by author, topic and/or area.

the Bibliographic Database can be downloaded at the SCOPAC website.
