Donegal County Council to monitor coastal erosion at Five Fingers Strand via a smart app

EMERGREEN project partner is going to install a stand, where people can take a picture and submit it to the council via an app.
06 November 2020 - EMERGREEN  project
Today we start an EMERGREEN project journey across the NPA regions. In the following weeks ERNACT led EMERGREEN project partners will explain how they are working together to build more resilient and greener communities using new technologies.

Our first stop is in Donegal (Ireland), with EMERGREEN project partner Donegal County Council, on a beautiful beach called Five Fingers Strand. Over recent years this beach has been impacted severely by coastal erosion. After stormy weather, stony areas develop and 100m of dunes have been lost by erosion. 

A recent Donegal County Council report says that this is a natural erosion deposition cycle and it recommends a policy of "no active intervention" at the site. So to monitor the progress of the erosion there, EMERGREEN project partner Donegal County Council is going to install a stand, where people can take a picture and send that to the council via an app.

The captured images will be used to monitor the coastal zone fluctuations and changes over time and will form a valuable resource as a baseline for any climate adaptation mitigation measures.
