Abstract

Since 1970 the 'greenhouse effect' and sea-level rise have generated concern. Coupled with this have been dramatic predictions of massive coastal impacts (eg erosion), often based on the indiscriminate use of the 'Bruun' rule. However, in predicting future impacts on the coastal zone, certain factors need to be considered. This paper will attempt to address some of the questions that arise.

Die 'kweekhuiseffek' en seevlakstyging wek al geruime tyd kommer. Dramatiese voorspellings van grootskaalse impakte (byvoorbeeld erosie) op die kusgebied gaan daarmee gepaard, maar berus dikwels op die onoordeelkundige gebruik van 'Bruun' se reel. Sekere faktore behoort egter eers in ag geneem te word, waarvan sommige hier bespreek word.
