Research questions

Nassos Vafeidis research questions focus on the response of coastal systems to various pressures related to physical processes and socio- economic development. Central research questions include:

  • How does coastal socio-economic development influence the impacts of processes such as erosion and flooding?
  • How will coastal nations respond to sea-level rise under different climatic and socio-economic scenarios?
  • What motivates coastal residents to implement coastal adaptation measures?
  • How will coastal wetlands develop under accelerated sea-level rise?
