Field campaign Sand Motor 2014

mapFrom 15 september until the end of October, the Coastal Research Group of Utrecht University is participating in the MegaPEX2014 field campaign at the Sand Motor. The Sand Motor is a mega-nourishment constructed in 2011 in an attempt to find more sustainable ways to maintain the Dutch coastline in the future. During the MegaPEX2014 campaign, an interdisciplinary and international team of researchers will be collecting data on hydrodynamics, morphodynamics, hydrology, aeolian processes and ecology. In the course of the coming six weeks the researchers will maintain a blog. On which they will provide insight into their field activities and will tell you how their research contributes to a better understanding of our dynamic coastal area. Their blog posts can also be followed on our Facebook page.
