Coastal Change in Tropical Overseas and Temperate Metropolitan France Inferred from a National Monitoring Network: A Summary from the Current Special Issue

Abstract : This paper provides an overview of the papers published in this Special Issue « Coastal Evolution under Climate Change along the Tropical Overseas and Temperate Metropolitan France » of Journal of Coastal Research. This special issue reflects the large diversity of mainland and tropical French coast and highlights the complex, site-and timescale-specific, combination of factors driving coastal evolution. Many contributions reveal a strong climate control on storm wave activity and, in turn, coastal response. In some contributions, the inherited geology and anthropogenic factors clearly appear affect coastal change. This special issue emphasises the need to monitor the coast combining different means to improve our understanding and predicting capacities of the natural variability of coastal response in a changing climate.
