Croatia’s gravel beaches are under immense pressure from the rapidly growing tourist industry that requires an increase in existing beach capacity by beach nourishment while at the same time the beaches are under the influence of increased storm activity as a consequence of climate change. The Beachex project aims to explore the mechanisms of gravel beach erosion and recovery to provide technical support for long-term beach nourishment in order to achieve a sustainable increase in beach capacity while reducing the influence of climate change.
