- ... Climate change and extreme weather events present a range of natural hazards for the islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides. The coastline of the island of South Uist suffered extensive erosion and shoreline change as a result of a highly destructive storm during January 2005. Particular sections of coastline are susceptible to flooding that may result in the future from damaging storms and also i ...

- ... The aim of this study is to discuss and to extend the characterization of (palaeo)tsunami deposits, and their source materials, based upon the detailed study of their heavy mineral assemblages. Results obtained from three distinct locations (Portugal, Scotland and Indonesia), different coastal contexts and chronologies (the tsunami events studied took place at 1500 cal. yr BP, AD 1755 and 2004) ar ...

- ... Litho- and biostratigraphic analyses undertaken in the Gruinart estuary, central Islay, reveal a detailed sedimentary record of Holocene relative sea-level changes and high-energy flood events during the last 10 000 years. During the Lateglacial-Holocene transition relative sea level had fallen to below c. 0.5 m OD and remained at this depth until c. 8830 ¹⁴C years BP. Thus, the early-Holocene min ...
