Course Title: Sand Transport Engineering in Coastal Areas

Delivery Method: Live Online

Course Description: This two-hour course begins with the foundational science of sediment transport (aeolian, fluvial, and coastal) and its impact on the beach environment before analyzing the roles that climate change and sea level play, and the tools and strategies for controlling beach erosion and sediment transport. The course concludes with case studies and a discussion on the lessons learned.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to discuss the science and principles of aeolian, fluvial, and coastal sediment transport.

Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to explain the impacts of sediment on the beach environment and how climate change and sea level rise affect sediment transport.

Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to adopt various tools and strategies for controlling beach erosion and sediment transport, such as sea walls, breakwaters, and jetties.

Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to utilize living shorelines and dredging, beach nourishment and wave attenuation techniques to limit erosion and sediment transport.
