Modelling is used to study rocky coast development in the past and to predict their response to changing climate, and rising sea level in the future. Most early models considered shore-normal profiles without sediment cover and in non-tidal environments, but newer models often consider the plan shape and elements such as the effect of tides on wave energy, wave refraction, beach morphodynamics, weathering, and changes in relative sea level. Nevertheless, the lack of pertinent field data, the inherent complexity of rock coasts, and continuing uncertainty over their age, inhibit attempts to develop more reliable models and to verify their results.
