Abstract:

The overall goal is to identify and understand the physical processes that shape and change coastal environments. Emphasis is on the application of remotely sensed signals that can be compared with in situ observations and assimilated within predictive models. In tidal flat environments, the major goals are to detect geotechnical properties e.g., sediment strength, morphologic features e.g., channels, and related hydrodynamic events e.g., plumes.
