Wave Overtopping Clips from Crosby Beach Released on YouTube

A selection of short clips, form GoPro and Smart Phone camera footage, taken during the National Oceanography Centre’s WireWall project during winter 2018/2019 have been released on the Channel Coastal Observatory’s YouTube channel. The footage shows wave overtopping around high water on the 7th March 2019, 25th January 2019 and 26th October 2018 at Crosby Beach, Hall Road car park (Hall Rd W, Waterloo, Liverpool L23 8SY).

These clips demonstrate the different types of overtopping conditions experienced during a selection of windy high tides observed during the project. They show examples of what the wave overtopping conditions are like for the existing structure at Crosby during typical windy winter days. The videos provide a visual understanding of the local hazards from wave overtopping. These can be used as an evidence base to recalibrate local hazard forecast thresholds or to select offshore conditions known to cause overtopping for the existing structure to allow assessment of the performance of proposed scheme designs.  

To view the clips visit the Channel Coastal Observatory’s YouTube channel.
