Biogeomorphological Coastal Modelling System


The biogeomorphological coastal modelling system aims to describe and predict biogeomorphological processes and their response to human interventions in the system of interest. Thus one can identify possibilities to make use of such processes, as well as new opportunities for nature associated with the infrastructure to be developed. Combined with a good understanding of how the system functions a biogeomorphological model enables credible predictions, not just of a single aspect like morphology, safety, ecology or biology, but of the combination including the effects of mutual interactions.
