Helmholtz Research Field: Earth and Environment
Institute of Coastal Ocean Dynamics
Within the context of our changing climate and increasing coastal development, the sustainable management and protection of our coasts requires an in depth understanding of our coastal waters. These are strongly influenced by the rapid development of offshore renewable energy infrastructure, intensified coastal development, and the occurrence of extreme weather events.
The Institute of Coastal Ocean Dynamics develops and utilizes state-of-the-art measurement systems and novel mechanistic models to better understand and predict the dynamics of the coastal ocean, and therefore help inform coastal management plans.
