HR Wallingford to Host Coastal Management Course

HR Wallingford has scheduled its “Introduction to Coastal Processes and Management” event for 9-10 September, 2014, in Wallingford, UK.

This two-day course will introduce methods used in designing and planning coastal engineering and management schemes.

The risks of coastal flooding and erosion, both in the UK and overseas, will increase as existing man-made defences such as flood embankments and seawalls deteriorate and as a result of sea level rise due to global warming.

There are many pressures to develop land close to the sea, and to use its natural resources, for example to provide minerals and renewable energy.

However there are constraints on public spending and a growing awareness of the need to preserve the natural coastal environment and to ensure that its management is sustainable.

This course will include the following topics:

– Coastal management planning – an overview of history of coastal planning and strategic coastal management;

– Waves and tides – an introduction and requirements for coastal management (extremes and climates);

– Beach sediment transport/morphology processes;

– Coastal management options – an introduction to the types, appropriate application and assessing the potential effects of such works, for example on the environment.
