Coastal Morphology and Processes part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
This class is focused on quantitative investigations into the origin/evolution of coastal landforms and the physical processes responsible for their creation and modification. We will cover the following topics: geomorphic classification of coasts, sediment description and analysis, sea level fluctuation, tides, generation and transformation of waves, wave breaking, nearshore currents, cross-shore sediment transport, longshore sediment transport, coastal morphodynamics, and human-coastal interactions.
