Title: The protection of the coast from climate change
Summary: The effects of climate change are beginning to be felt on our coasts. Under these circumstances, the application of management methods is required which are aimed at the adaptation of the coastal environment where the change is evident. The conservation of these oceanic Posidonia grasses, as well as sound management of the dead seaweed that comes ashore are two key elements for the adaptation and relief of the occurrences of coastal erosion linked to climate change.
