The physical environment, i.e. waves, currents, sediment movement, beaches, erosion/deposition mechanisms, as well as potential consequences of sea-level rise and global warming, is integrated with anthropogenic dimensions, i.e. usage, coastal defence, pollution (e.g. persistent marine debris) and resource exploitation. The course also gives students an understanding of the consequences of human interactions with both marine and coastal environments as well as an introduction to quantitative techniques for data processing, measuring and data presentation in the field of coastal and marine management.
