The Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 requires the development of an Adaptation Programme to take forward the risks identified within the UK’s Climate Change Risk Assessment (UK-CCRA). The UK-CCRA anticipates increases in sea level, coastal erosion and coastal flooding to increasingly affect Scotland’s soft coastlines and the assets found on these coasts. Shoreline Management Plans have been produced for only short sections of the Scottish coast which limits the information available to coastal managers. Consequently a National Coastal Change Assessment (NCCA) has been commissioned by the Scottish Government and is supported by a number of agencies.

This data was created to display the inland extent of projected coastal erosion, based on recent change (between the 1970s and Modern MHWS position). It displays four polygon data sets via the 'Change_Direction': Erosion (areas seawards of the 2100projected position of Mean High Water Springs), Erosion Influence (a 10m landward buffer of the projected position of 2100MHWS) and Erosion Vicinity (a further 50m landward buffer on Erosion Influence) and Accretion (a 5m buffer on MHWS where MHWS has moved seawards between 1970s and Modern data). This data contains the intersect values for society's assets (lengths of roads (km), areas of designates sites (ha)). This data was analysed as part of the‘Dynamic Coast’Scotland’s National Coastal Change Assessment, see www.dynamiccoast.com for more info.

This layer is part of a series of Scottish Natural Heritage Web Map Service (WMS) layers. The layers are best viewed at 1:433,434 or better as they are slow to draw.

This layer shows Mean High Water Spring, selected from OS MasterMap dataset and amended with data from additional sources. Epoch 2001 to 2016. Extent: Soft or Erodible shorelines. Additional sources include MHWS line extracted from public sector LiDAR surveys etc, where these we’re more representative than the OS data. This data was produced as part of ‘Dynamic Coast’ Scotland’s National Coastal Change Assessment, see www.dynamiccoast.com for more info.

Common/Harbour seal (Phoca vitulina) - SMRU coordinated summer counts of in period 2011 to 2015 (SNH WMS)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

The harbour or common seal (Phoca vitulina) occurs in the North Atlantic and North Pacific. There are about 83,000 harbour seals in Europe. About 35% of this population is found in UK waters, and 83% of these in Scottish waters.

The layer depicts summer counts coordinated by the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU)
