Abstract

This paper summarises the erosion of the « hard » coast (cliffs and shore platforms) of northeast Ireland, between Portstewart, Co. Londonderry and Larne, Co. Antrim. Although there is abundant evidence of localised coastal changes, it is not possible to define rates of erosion except on the glacial material at Portballintrae. Elsewhere, marine erosion is confined to occasional block falls or block dislodgement. Management requirements of the Co. Antrim cliffs are limited, but due consideration should be given to the problems of accessibility, cliffs and rock-fall hazards
