Categorizing Resilience of Scotland’s Natural Coastal Defenses

The Dynamic Coast research project continues in 2018, building on the earlier National Coastal Change Assessment.

The next phase will map and categorize the resilience of Scotland’s natural coastal defenses (identifying where low dunes may breach), it will estimate how future climate change may exacerbate erosion on a soft (erodible) coast.

It will also incorporate the latest monitoring techniques to inform natural resilience and vulnerability of the shoreline.

At five ‘super sites’, including St Andrews, Montrose and Skara Brae we will forecast future change, anticipated damage and develop mitigation and adaptation plans with stakeholders,” according to the Dynamic Coast’s official project website.

“This will help demonstrate the applicability and need for adaptation actions across the public sector. Importantly, it will also consider the social justice implications of existing and climate change exacerbated coastal erosion in Scotland.”

Prof. Jim Hansom at the University of Glasgow will lead up an expanded team, working closely with the steering group and project partners.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
