Coastal Behaviour and Rates of Activity (COBRA)

A research project of the Department of Geography.


COBRA is a collaborative research project undertaken between the Geography Department, Durham University, and Cleveland Potash Limited, Boulby, North Yorkshire. The research in the project addresses aspects of coastal geomorphology, ground deformations associated with historic and contemporary mineral extraction, and the legacy and impact of the historic mining industry on the coastaline of North Yorkshire. The research is focussed upon the 25km of coast between Sandsend and Saltburn, but the findings are applicable far beyond.

The web-page gives both further details of the research undertaken to date, publications, presentations and forthcoming events where the research is due to be presented:
