1. Processes of long-term coastal evolution and their mathematical modelling : Application to the Mozambican coast
Sammanfattning : Different processes in response to the action of natural driven forces and the human interference on coastal systems act together, contributing to shape the coast. Coastal evolution models have been developed as useful tools to better understand the contribution of different processes on observed coastal changes, and also to anticipate future evolution in response to different actions and interventions taking place along the coast.

Sammanfattning : Quantitative and experimental studies on Recent sedimentary processes, with particular reference to element dynamics and mass transport, were conducted in a coastal area of the north-western Baltic proper. A five-year geochemical study reports sediment trap catches, and estimates the flux dynamics of resuspended sediments and primary settling matter. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Overwash is the flow of water and sediment over the crest of a beach system when the runup level of waves or the water level, often enhanced by storm surge, exceeds the local beach or dune crest height. The impacts of overwash on coastal barriers or low lying mainland coasts are striking. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The marine atmosphere can be highly variable in space and time, and the coastal terrain plays a crucial role in influencing its properties. These, in turn, determine the atmospheric transport in the coastal zone. LÄS MER
5. Fish in the coastal seascape : exploring ecological processes and connectivity for conservation of temperate fish communities
Sammanfattning : The need to understand patterns and processes in the marine environment has never been so profound as today, particularly as anthropogenic pressures upon coastal regions are drastically affecting habitats and species across a vast range. One approach to further understand these patterns and processes is through the use of seascape ecology methods. LÄS MER
