The IADC Award winning paper explains how widening and improving the severely eroded Emerald Beach shoreline required recognition of local interests in tourism and fishing, and cooperation between property owners, government, environmental groups and dredge contractors.
For his discussion of mathematical models to manage and analyze erosion and despositions along the coastline, an IADC Young Authors Award was presented to Chakib Biar at the CEDA Dredging Days in Morocco, October 2002.
Developing nations urgently need to consider the problems of coastal dynamics — accretion, erosion and long-shore drift — caused by man’s economic activities. This study models and monitors altered beach states
Studies reveal some interesting and surprising features about circulation and the fluid mud layer in an important harbour area.
An IADC "Most Promising Student" Award has been presented to a graduate of TU Delft for her work on determining the magnitude and direction of wave-induced sediment transport.
