The Sefton Coast, which extends over 34 kilometres (21 miles), is comprised of soft and granular deposits of sand, silt, clay and peat. There are no outcrops of rock on the shoreline. Hence, the forces of nature readily mould it, so the shoreline is constantly changing in response to the fluctuating influence of wind and water and as a result of human activity.


The main climate change drivers which are likely to affect Lough Swilly were found to be sea level rise and increases in sea temperature. However, increased storminess may also have detrimental affects.
