Open Webinar (July 04): Understanding coastal evolution for better coastal management

11:45 Central European Summer time :: Click here for local timings

Sandy beaches are precious—as the first line of defence against coastal storms, and for the ecosystem services they provide. However, the world over, beaches are getting eroded-- due to the interruption of flow of sand that nourishes them, due to sand mining, and due to effects of sea-level rise.

At a webinar on July 4th , IHE-Delft’s Professor
Dano Roelvink will discuss the nature of these problems, and how they may be exacerbated by sea-level rise and changes in wind and wave climate. He will also present a range of solutions—hard and soft, engineering-heavy and nature-based.

Among others, he will present
ShorelineS, a model being developed to forecast how coastlines will evolve as a result of the various forces acting upon them. ShorelineS is being developed as a tool that can be used not only by scientists but also by engaged citizens, to see how human impact has altered coasts and what are the different strategies to mitigate/adapt to it. (It is being developed at IHE Delft in collaboration with Deltares).

The webinar is free to attend and open to all. IHE-Delft, Professor Roelvink, and TheWaterChannel invite you to join the discussions with your questions, comments, and feedback.
