As well as the Harboøre Tange

The town of Thyborøn is among the most climate vulnerable in Denmark and is challenged by climate change from all sides. This is aggravated by the fact that large parts of Thyborøn underground is based on filling material from the past.

In some areas of Thyborøn, subsidence of 1 cm per year can be seen. At the same time, Harboøre Tange is massively polluted due to the fact that the factory Cheminova has occupied the area since 1952.

Based on prior work, the project partners initiate together with relevant stakeholders the development of a dynamic adaptation model describing groundwater level as a function of seawater level, groundwater level, subsidence and wind conditions.

Innovative pipelines will feauture as an important part of this action. This action primarily links to governance and tools within all aspects of the hydrological cycle apart from rivers.
