At the edge of Vancouver and the Strait of Georgia the Point Grey cliffs experience marine and subaerial erosion. The retreat of the cliffs will eventually result in losing university assets, infrastructure and archaeological treasures. Wave-induced sediment transports are supposed to be the main marine erosion mechanism. This report presents...

Erosion of the cliffs at the Point Grey Peninsula threatens important infrastructure and buildings at UBC. In order to tackle this problem, UBC launched a comprehensive project called Living Breakwaters. This project is part of Living Breakwaters and aims to act as a transversal element among different expertise, integrating these...

Cliff coasts are dynamic environments that can retreat very quickly. However, the<br/>short-term changes and factors contributing to cliff coast erosion have not received as much attention as dune coasts. In this study, three soft-cliff systems in the southern Baltic Sea were monitored with the use of terrestrial laser scanner technology over a...

In Miȩdzyzdroje, a coastal town in Poland, significant cliff retreat has been observed in recent times. It used to be considered mainly a response to storm events with particularly high water levels and wave energy. However, morphology of cliff coasts is shaped not only by the most extreme storm surges or by a number of accompanying processes...

Marine contractors deal with processes that are understood qualitatively but are hard to quantify. The amount of data available for these processes is ever growing, and so too the intrinsic value that lies within this data. Several data driven model approaches can be used to analyse this process data, one being a Bayesian Network (BN) approach....

Discusion between van Veen and Minikin on the effectivity of groynes. Reading this discussion one should realise that at that time there was no clear understanding of wave driven longshore currents.
