Coastal Engineering

Coastal engineering is a branch of civil engineering concerning the specific demands posed by constructing at or near coast, as well as the development of the coast itself. The hydrodynamic impact of especially waves, tides, storm surges and tsunamis and   harsh environment of salt seawater are typical challenges for the coastal engineer  as are the morph dynamic changes of the coastal topography, caused both by the autonomous development of system and man-made changes. The areas of interest in coastal engineering include the coasts of the oceans, seas, marginal seas, big lakes and estuaries. Besides building, design and maintenance of coastal structures, coastal engineers are often interdisciplinary involved in integrated coastal zone management, also because of their specific knowledge of hydro- and morph dynamics of the coastal system. This may include providing input and technology for e.g. environmental impact assessment, port development, strategies for coastal defense, offshore wind farms, land reclamation and other energy-production facilities, etc.
