Abstract: The CSIR’s coastal systems research group conducts trans-disciplinary research from basic research up to the provision of policies and technical guidelines to prepare the coastal communities in South Africa and beyond with coastal protection and climate change adaptation solutions. Through this, we constructively support coastal managers to establish and maintain the sustainable use of our natural coastal resources and anthropogenic infrastructure for a safer future. Coastal remote sensing focusses on the seamless assessment of processes and dynamics from the shallow near-shore ocean up to the land. This capability is, however, very scarce and underdeveloped in South Africa and Africa.
