University of Lund (UniLund): Partner 19

University of LundThe 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.
