The long-term goal of this research is to develop and test predictive models for nearshore and coastal processes. Initial development and testing of models is to be accomplished through monitoring over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales. Model development is to be accomplished within the framework of the nearshore as a hierarchical complex system, wherein, at discretely ordered space and time scales, a small number of variables emerge as the dominant influences on the dynamics of this nonlinear, open system and the interactions between these dominant variables give rise to complex, emergent behavior.
