Netherlands Centre for Coastal Research
The Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences (KNAW) has elected 26 new members. Each member chosen for their academic achievements and are appointed for life. Among them is Suzanne Hulscher, Professor Water Engineering and Management at the University of Twente (and member of the NCK supervisory board). Congratulations!
Research in recent decades has demonstrated that the change of sea level is far from uniform around the globe. Even within a relatively small coastal area like the Netherlands, notable differences are found in the rise of sea level, which are still partly unexplained. We will organise a NCK theme day on this topic in September, where we'll bring together researchers from various universities and institutes to provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art knowledge on regional sea level change and to identify lacunae in our understanding. Interested? View speakers and register now!
The bi-annual NCK Summer School will be held at the island of Texel, the Netherlands, from June 26th untill July 7th this year. The Summer School focusses on estuarine and coastal processes in relation to coastal zone management during a series of inspiring lectures and case studies.
