Short summary
The expected sea level rise by the year 2100 will determine an adaptation of the whole coastal system and the land retreat of the shoreline. Future scenarios coupled with the improvement of mining technologies will favour increased exploitation of sand deposits for nourishment. This work summarises a large data set of geophysical and sedimentological data that maps the spatial features of submerged sand deposits and is a useful tool in future climate change scenarios.
