Sediment Transport in Coastal Environments

Dates 2013-10-01 to 2018-09-30
Description 1. Use CMG expertise to investigate problems in coastal sediment transport that are relevant to sediment management issues, including protection of coastal ecosystems, reducing the risk of natural hazards, and adapting to or predicting effects of climate change.2. Use the results obtained in these studies to improve understanding of sediment transport processes, and incorporate this improved understanding in predictive models.3. Conduct research and advise resource managers on the impacts of human activities and the effectiveness of restoration measures on river, estuarine, and marine habitats in collaboration with federal, state, and local agencies, and academic partners.
