13th November 2017. The team at NCI Mablethorpe have received an interesting talk by Dr Robert Dugdale, the Vice Chancellor of Nottingham University.
Dr Dugdale spoke at NCI Mabelthorpe’s monthly training meeting, held at the Community Centre, on the subject of tidal surges and coastal erosion. He gave a brief metrological overview of how these surges develop, especially on the North Sea coast, and discussed at length the cause and effect and how certain types of weather can develop these surges, giving the members an insight into the vagaries of our local weather system. Dr Dugdale concluded with a detailed explanation of what the results were of the Tidal surges experienced earlier in the year, and what to expect in the future.
The NCI Mablethorpe team also invited members of the local HM Coastguard, members of the Mablethorpe RNLI, and members of the Saltfleet Haven boat club, along with their colleagues from Skegness NCI, to attend and the members of HM Coastguard said after the lecture that it had been very informative and thanked NCI Mablethorpe for organising an excellent training evening. The evening was rounded off by light refreshments provided by the ladies support group of Mablethorpe NCI Team.
