Summary Objectives:-
To provide large-scale field data for the validation of numerical models of coastal processes and to deliver validated modelling tools and methodologies for use in the coastal zone.

Key Customer Purpose:-
Remedy the present lack of sand transport and morphodynamics field data suitable for testing the performance of numerical models used for the design and management of coastal projects and thus enable MAFF to deliver validated models to the industry and provide guidance on the uncertainty connected to results generated by these models.
