To better inform decisions associated with coastal management a database of numerical simulations has been generated using publically available data to populate an online decision-support tool (DST). This research is part of the Adaptation and Resilience of Coastal Energy Supply (ARCoES) project that focuses on areas of critical coastal energy infrastructure within the UK, such as nuclear power station locations. This web-based tool has been developed with coastal and energy sector practitioners to produce a system that visualizes plausible future changes in flood hazard to assess when ‘tipping points’ in a location’s management strategy may be required in response to rising sea levels and storms over the next 500 years. Although the main product is focused on vulnerability to flooding, additional research on the natural resilience of shorelines has also been considered in relation to future adaptation strategies. These findings are fed into economic models developed through ARCoES to assess the cost-benefit impacts or real options
