Abstract

Investigations have concentrated on the Jurassic Portland Limestone outcrop of the Isle of Purbeck. Three types of data are considered, including mapped changes in the nature and location of the cliffline, material strength and the rock mass discontinuity pattern. Emphasis is thus placed on the synthesis of quantifiable rock mechanics parameters and details of change in coastline morphology. Results indicate that although cliff retreat shows no regular spatial or temporal pattern, clear trends can be identified
