Coastal modelling tool Soft Cliff And Platform Erosion
Recent current version of SCAPE (SCAPE+), Version 1.23 onwards) have benefited from development as part of the Integrating COAstal Sediment sySTems (iCOASST) project, funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC project NE/J005541/1). Further information on this modelling tool and iCOASST can be found at: http://www.icoasst.net http://www.channelcoast.org/iCOASST
Changes have been made to the source code since the iCOASST project to deal with bugs that have come to light and to make minor changes to the representation of some processes.
