Coastal Evolution: Physics vs Biology

How physics is changing coastal development science

Over recent years it has become increasingly clear that many environmental systems cannot be fully understood without considering both physical and biological processes, as welll as their interaction.

Barend van Maanen from the University of Southampton will illustrate the importance of these biophysical interactions by presenting new research on coastal evolution. In tropical and subtropical regions, mangroves often occupy the area between the land and the sea. These
ecosystems interact with physical forces such as waves and tides. What are the leading factors driving the evolution of the coast in these regions: physical or biological?
