Development of coastal erosion hazard maps: Grenada

Coastal beach erosion hazard maps for twenty selected bays in Grenada, with one bay, namely Grand Anse Bay mapped at high-resolution. These maps reveal the long-term trends around the coast of Grenada.

An initial mission to the country was undertaken in order to collect necessary field data for the erosion analysis; meet the key stakeholders and to become familiar with the study area. At the initial meeting, key stakeholders agreed that the 100-year return period event and the 20-year shelf life would be the main modeling parameters for the erosion analysis.
