Protecting our coasts with resilience to sea level rise, king tides, wind waves, storm surge, and flooding rains has never been more critical but modelling these parameters and implementing solutions in the coastal interface can be challenging. 

This presentation will discuss the innovative use of nature-based coastal protection along with the complexities and opportunities involved in modelling and implementing coastal protection solutions in regions that require a high level of hydrodynamic fidelity.

Join our "Coast Guard" experts for an interactive discussion and a presentation of the latest developments in coastal protection technologies that take a changing climate into account.
