Article summary:

1. Coastal erosion is a natural phenomenon that is caused by factors such as wind, waves, and soil conditions. It can be intensified by anthropogenic activities and poses significant socio-economic and environmental challenges in the UK, particularly in Wales.

2. Historic landfill sites located in coastal areas are at risk of exposure due to coastal erosion and rising sea levels. These sites were constructed without proper waste management practices, leading to potential pollution problems from contaminants such as trace metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

3. A GIS-based investigation using a multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) approach was conducted to identify and rank historic landfill sites in Wales based on their potential for exposure due to coastal erosion. Factors considered in the analysis included distance from the coastline, predicted coastal erosion, areas already eroded, areas likely to be affected by erosion, and proximity to critical environmental conservation areas.
