Managed realignment in the Humber Estuary, UK

On the Humber Estuary, England’s flood and coastal erosion risk management agency has developed a series of managed realignmentschemes as part of its Flood Defence Strategy. These schemes primarily address intertidal habitat loss due to coastal squeeze, whereby the existence of flood defences in an environment of relative sea level rise entail a gradual loss (squeeze) of the intertidal zone. However, a component of the strategy addresses flood management capacity needs in the

Upper Humber, whilst some schemes, at least in part, address the direct loss of intertidal habitat resulting from ongoing flood defence works on the estuary.
