Research in this theme focuses on the interactions between the water motion, sediment transport and bottom changes in coastal seas and estuaries. Both sandy and mud-dominated coastal systems are investigated. The following approaches are used to gain more understanding of hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes: collection and analysis of field observations, simulations with complex numerical models and interpretation of these results, development and analysis of idealized mathematical models.
