Conference Main Theme

Impacts of human activity on dynamic coastal processes.

Scientific Scope

The scope of the Coastal Dynamics series of conferences is the dynamics of the coastal system. This scope covers 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 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.


Conference Topics

The main theme of the 2009 Coastal Dynamics conference will be the impacts of human activity on dynamic coastal processes. Example topics, which are not exhaustive, within this theme are:

  1. Coastal hydrodynamics
  2. Coastal sediment transport
  3. Coastal morphodynamics
  4. Coastal hydro-meteorology (waves, currents, tides, tsunami, storm surge, etc.)
  5. Coastal environmental problems and marine ecology
  6. Observational techniques and results (field and lab)
  7. Numerical simulation (models and results)
  8. Miscellaneous coastal dynamics
