COASTAL SEDIMENT TRANSPORT: THE COAST3D PROJECT

R.L. Soulsby

Abstract


The MAST-1IIRTD project COAST3D started in October 1997. A consortium of 11 partners including hydraulic laboratories, universities and national regulatory authorities fromfive EU states (UK, Netherlands, France, Spain and Belgium) will undertake this three-and-a-half year project. The project will make field measurements of waves, currents, sediment transport and morphodynamics at two contrasting sites. The results will be used to valid existing morphodynamic computational models, and lead to coastal zone management tools.
