WORKSHOP WEST - WavEs and Sediment Transport

9-11 avr. 2024
IUEM - University of Brest - Rue Dumont D'Urville - Plouzané (France)

WEST (Natural Breaking WavEs and Sediment Transport during beach recovery) project, funded by ANR, focuses on intra-wave hydrodynamics and induced sediment transport at the land-sea interface, specifically on sandy beaches. It relies on innovative instruments and methodologies to understand the variability of the coastal environment and aims at filling the gap between theory and in situ measurements of coastal dynamics. The main study site is made of sand and gravel (mixed environment), and is surveyed for 20 years via topo-bathymetry measurements, leading to a complementary study on the seasonal to multi-annual morphodynamics of such environment. The objective of this workshop is to gather the community around the three following topics: sediment transport under waves, innovative measurement technics & methodology for coastal studies and morphodynamics of mixed (sand & gravel) beaches.
