First two-week measurement campaigns are a fact

Added on 2017-08-16
A resilient coast is a coast that can withstand storm erosion and that can rapidly recover after a storm. To determine the coastal resilience, and to ultimately improve it, it is necessary to get a good overview of the processes that can lead to recovery.


During the month of March (from Monday 13 until Friday 24 March) the first overarching measurement campaign took place, in which sand transport above and below the waterline were measured including the height of the beach. During this campaign all processes that can lead to recovery were studied simultaneously, which is unique in coastal research. The measurements took place in Mariakerke (Ostend), a zone representative for the developed part of the Belgian coast.

   


In May (from Monday 8 until Friday 19 May), the same measurements took place along the natural part of the coast in Groenendijk. Until the end of the CREST project (November 2019) these measuring campaigns will be repeated on a regular basis. An overview can be consulted at http://www.crestproject.be/en/calendar.
