    Deltares is performing tests in the Atlantic Basin (wave current basin) to study the suction effects of passing ships on ships moored in a port. The aim of these tests is to make ports safer. Especially in narrow passages, the suction effects of large vessels can lead to large problems: breaking mooring lines, damage to […]

    A computer model developed, in part, by University of Florida researchers can help coastal managers better understand the long-term effects of major storms, sea-level rise and beach restoration activities and possibly save millions of dollars. Researchers used erosion data following tropical storms and hurricanes that hit Santa Rosa Island, off Florida’s Panhandle, and sea-level rise […]

    Novel research within WAMSI’s Dredging Science Node will redefine how current dredged sediment transport models predict key pressure parameters such as sediment deposition rates within ecologically significant marine habitats. Sediment deposition and subsequent smothering of marine habitats such as corals and seagrasses is one of the mechanisms by which dredging can impact on the environment. […]

    Gravel beaches occur on many wave-dominated coasts across the world and are widely considered an effective and sustainable form of coastal defense. Despite their societal importance, relatively little research has been directed towards understanding the mechanisms leading to their failure during storms. As a result, coastal managers have very limited guidance when estimating the potential […]
