Contribution aux recherches en géographie littorale sur la Côte d’Opale

Abstract : The coastline concept remains, still today, difficult to apprehend, in spite of its growing interest and its many definitions. However, those definitions, which have evolved, have the merit to better understand the stakes of this specific area, which is at the same time attractive and under pressure. The management of this environment must take into account the integration of its spatial dynamics, which are both from marine and continental origins. The knowledge and the identification of those dynamics are necessary to any integrated management. In this scope, the Côte d’Opale, which represents, in term of landscape, a beautiful “picture” of Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, is a space of study for the region’s coastal specialized geographers. This environment allows to recognised the natural heritage and closely associates the large fields of geography : the examples of the coastal risks and the spatial analysis of the strait of Pas-de-Calais illustrate the recent integration of this research to the management of the coastal zone. This integration is parallel to carried out the association of joint projects in relation with the stakeholders of the territory, which are managers, users or elected officials. This bottom up is basic within the framework of the program For a balanced development of coastal territories by a ICZM, managed by the SMCO.
