Coastal images from the whole world help to understand the risks of sea-level rise

In the Citizen Science Project "Coastwards", interested laypeople can support scientists from the Institute of Geography at Kiel University to better understand the risks of sea-level rise.


People can upload coastal images on the online platform "Coastwards" and in this way contribute to improving known information about the physical characteristics of coasts world-wide. The images are incorporated into a global databank and will provide an important basis for the development of long-term adaption strategies. Follow the link to reach the website
