Intrinsic to the topic of Seabed-Structure Interaction S-SI of objects coupled with the seafloor is the dynamics of the system. The dynamics involve environmental forcing of the object and the seabed, the fundamental properties of the geological material, the size an shape of the object, and the time-dependent processes associated with the coupling of the water column, seabed, and the object. Thus, the most crucial S-Sl research problems to address in the Coastal Benthic Boundary Layer Special Research Project SRP should focus on the dynamics and time-dependent processes affecting objects coupled to the sea floor. The research efforts should include a range of scales from micro to macro but largely focused on the dynamics and processes in proximity to the object rather than broad scale geological oceanographic processes. Much is to be gained by interdisciplinary research well focused on specific S-SI phenomena.
