The significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over long- and short-term manifesting as a climate change (IPCC, 2013) affects all structures especially the ones on the interface between air, soil,and water such as coastal slopes (e.g. natural or engineered; Meyer et al 2010). The design and management of these structures is traditionally based on less likely, detrimental, assumed climate characteristics that, if they happen, will bring relatively insignificant change in terms of affecting the stability of the structure.
