Coastal Dynamics 2017

The Coastal Dynamics conference series advances the community's understanding of recent applied and basic research concerning 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.
