University of Kiel (CAU): Partner 20


University of KielThe coastal geography branch of UniKiel is part of the Department of
Geography at CAU (Christian-Albrechts-Universitaet zu Kiel). It has a long tradition and expertise in marine and coastal research issues world-wide. Since the late 1980s the main focus of the branch has been on studies relating to coastal morphodynamics and to coastal vulnerability and risk assessment. Special emphasis of recent research is on climate-change impacts, in particular effects of accelerated sea-level rise and storm flood events. The work has addressed a wide variety of aspects, from hydrologic and morphodynamic impacts to quantitative analysis of socio-economic vulnerability and has successfully developed methodologies for these assessments at various levels of scale. Results of this work have been effectively implemented in coastal defence master plans and strategies for Integrated coastal Zone Management in Germany.
