NWO award for research into a climate-proof coast

To climate-proof the coast, we need to gain more insight into the lower part of the coast, the so-called lower shoreface (water depths between approx. 8 and 20 m), which is an essential link between the offshore seabed and the coastal zone. The lower shoreface is an important natural sediment source that determines the response of the coast to rising sea levels. UT researcher Jebbe van der Werf (Faculty of ET and working at knowledge institute Deltares) was awarded a NWO grant for the research proposal MELODY (NWO is the Dutch Research Council): Modeling Lower Shoreface Seabed Dynamics for a Climate-Proof Coast.
