Rising Sea Level in Estuaries; Impact on Tide and Morphology
Within the framework of the current societal climate change impact discussions, NCK organises a webinar to explore the impact of sea level rise on the hydrodynamics and morphodynamics in Dutch estuaries on Tuesday, the 27th of October. The aims of the webinar are to present a broad overview on ongoing research efforts by NCK partners and to identify knowledge gaps and research directions in an interactive, online setting.
The programme consists of 10-minute presentations followed by 5 minutes of questions. The presentations are followed by an open discussion by all participants on identification of knowledge gaps and research directions. We will conclude by a plenary presentation of the discussion findings. The character of the presentations will be directed to physical aspects, but the discussions may explore implications for management and policy.
