Department of Water Resources Engineering at the University of Lund
(ULU) has been working with coastal model development over the last
25 years. Since 1985, this work has been performed in close co-operation
with Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC), US Army Corps of
Engineers. Both principal investigators (PIs, see below) did a large
portion of their doctorate work at CERC. The shoreline evolution
model GENESIS, the profile evolution model SBEACH, and the longshore
current model NMLONG were all developed at ULU. These model are
considered as state-of-the-art within their respective domains and
are officially adopted as Corps of Engineer models. As such they
are being used by hundreds of researchers, consultants, and managers
around the world to analyse and solve prototype engineering problems.
The two PIs have not only been working with model development but
also been directly involved in several prototype applications around
the US coast together with Corps of Engineers District Offices.
A large portion of their work has involved the study and modelling
of regional and long-term coastal evolution. Previously, the two
PIs have been involved in three MAST projects; PACE, SAFE, and BASYS.
Presently, they are involved in the final stages of the HUMOR project.
