  1. Managed retreat

    In the context of coastal erosion, managed retreat allows an area that was not previously exposed to flooding by the sea to become flooded by removing coastal protection. This process is usually in low lying estuarine areas and almost always involves flooding of land that has at some point in the past been claimed from the sea. Managed retreat is often a response to sea level rise exacerbated by local subsidence of the land surface due to isostatic rebound in the north.
