Workshop on Long-term morphological modeling

A workshop on long-term morphological modeling of beaches will be offered as part of MEC2019. The workshop will include both theory and hands-on applications, and will be taught by Prof Hans Hanson, a world specialist on coastal morphodynamics. The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Why use numerical models?
  • 1-line modeling and GENESIS
  • Brief descriptions about DHI-Mike-Litpack, Deltares-Unibest-CL+, and GenCade
  • Practical modeling advice, including Do's and Don'ts
  • Reasonable modeling expectations
  • Interactive simple modeling session

The participation in the workshop is free for MEC2019 participants. However, due to room limitations, the number of attendees is limited to 40. Participants will be accepted on a first come - first served basis. Interested parties should therefore indicate their interest in participating in the workshop in their registration for MEC2019.
