Doctoral Training Partnership: Assessing and predicting natural environmental impacts on cultural heritage landscapes: a case study on Hadrian’s Wall
The overall aim of the research project is to assess the vulnerability of tangible cultural heritage to natural hazards under a changing climate regime, demonstrating this on an iconic monument of international renown. To achieve the aim, the study will address the following objectives:
1. Review the state of the art in spatio-temporal landscape modelling and appraise the suitability of existing and alternative datasets of the Wall;
2. Construct fully integrated, coherent 3D time series for characteristic sites on the Wall that are at risk to natural environmental processes;
3. Extend the time series by predictive modelling of inherent natural environmental processes under different future climate change scenarios;
4. Interpret the impact of historic evolution and future projection on the tangible cultural heritage.
