Coastal Dynamics 2017 Conference Takes Place in June
The Coastal Dynamics 2017 Conference will take place from June 12-16, 2017 in Helsingør, just north of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Coastal Dynamics conference series advances the community’s understanding of recent applied and basic research concerning coastal waves and currents, interactions between wind, water and sediments and morphology changes in different morphological environments (with and without structures) such as sandy, rocky and muddy coasts, inlets and estuaries, the organizers stated.
The conference documents research and applications treating these coastal dynamics at the short, medium and large/long spatial and temporal scales of the climatic drivers and coastal responses.
Approaches include theoretical formulations, field and laboratory observations, and numerical simulations.
Two short courses will be given on 12 June by staff members of DHI, Danish Coastal Authorities, Technical University of Denmark and University of Copenhagen:
- Open coasts, hard structures and spits – Modelling shoreline evolution using new MIKE modelling tools;
- Climate change and coastal adaptation – Solving erosion and flooding problems.
