This webinar builds on the previous AWS 2D and 3D Sediment Transport and Morphological Modelling webinar of December 2021 as we apply our previous learning to some exciting and diverse real world use cases.

We’ll explore the use of sediment transport and morphologic modelling to:

• Assess river mouth sediment dynamics and potential for flood impacts during the design and construction of the Opotiki Harbour Development, a new trained river entrance for the Opotiki River (Mark Pennington Tonkin & Taylor New Zealand); and

• Investigate coastal navigation management options following the ocean breakthrough of northern Bribie Island, a coastal sand barrier island on the eastern Australian coastline (Alex Waterhouse, BMT Australia).
