Abstract
    Warmer winters, increased cyclonic activity and frequent occurrence of extremely strong storms in northern Europe seem to be closely related phenomena caused by climate change. Climatic changes in moderate and high latitudes have led to critical changes in the dynamics and development of coastal areas. In Estonia, the greatest destruction occurs on sandy beaches that are well exposed to waves and is associated with stormy periods when storm surge elevates sea level. Ice-free sea and unfrozen sediments enhance the activity of shore processes.
