Summary Objective:
To develop an enhanced state-of-the-art modelling capability for predicting the long-term morphological evolution of inter-tidal mudflats.

Key Customer Purpose:
Enable MAFF to develop strategic estuarial defence policies based on the best possible predictions of long-term mud-flat evolution. Provide a tool for coastal engineers to make predictions of long-term changes in estuary morphology to test the sustainability of scheme options.
