Coastal and Shelf Sea Dynamics

Coastal and Shelf Sea Dynamics

Research in this theme focuses on the interactions between the water motion, sediment transport and bottom changes in coastal seas and estuaries. Both sandy and mud-dominated coastal systems are investigated. The following approaches are used to gain more understanding of hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes: collection and analysis of field observations, simulations with complex numerical models and interpretation of these results, development and analysis of idealized mathematical models.

This research theme includes researchers from the the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, and the Department of Physical Geography, Faculty of Geosciences, of Utrecht University.
