The Copper coast will be the focus of a rapid coastal zone assessment, extending from Tramore in the east to Dungarvan in the west. This soft coastline is suffering badly from the impacts of climate change, resulting in damage to built heritage and archaeological sites. Walkover survey aims to record the current condition of the known and unknown archaeological sites, priority sites will be identified for detailed recording methodologies. Repeated capture of 3D photogrammetric drone models of this coastline over the project period will produce a measurable dataset that can be compared to understand the dynamics of coastal change caused by climate change.
