Institute of Coastal Systems - Analysis and Modeling

At the Institute for Coastal Systems Analysis and Modeling we reconstruct past environmental conditions and develop forecasting methods and future scenarios for coastal systems. We analyse how coastal systems change from physical, ecological and socio-economic perspectives with the goal to predict future changes and thereby create a scientific basis for a sustainable development and future-oriented coastal management. Based on our research, we support strategic and informed decision-making processes in the public and private sectors both methodologically and scientifically. In our work, we use coupled complex mechanistical models, statistical models and state-of-the-art AI methods.
