Proceedings of the Fifth International Coastal Dynamics Conference, held in Barcelona, Spain, April 4-8, 2005. Sponsored by Laboratori D.enginyeria Martima Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya. Supported by International Centre for Coastal Resources Research; E.T.S. D’enginyers de Camins, Canals i Ports de Barcelona; D.G. de Investigacion, Ministerio de Educacion y Ciencia; D.G. de Costas, Ministerio de Medio Ambiente; Dursi, Generalitat de Catalunya; Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya. With cooperation of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE.
This collection contains 118 papers comprising a valuable source of information on coastal dynamics from the latest research to the newest engineering applications. Coastal zones are fragile environments that support many conflicting uses, particularly in developed countries. To diagnose and mitigate problems, the complex dynamics of coastal zones, especially processes and scales, must be carefully analyzed. These papers investigate the coexistence of scales and the roles they play in episodic events.
- bed/suspended fluxes,
- coarse to silt sediments,
- morphodynamics in various environments,
- sediment fluxes with and without structures, and
- the interaction with climactic drivers and coastal structures at various scales.
