Navigation

Sustaining the recreational and economic viability of maritime regions depends upon maintaining navigability of shipping channels and coastlines. Coastal erosion and shoreline change are major concerns, threatening coastal communities, public infrastructure, tourism, and fishing enterprises. EEMS helps assess the impacts of changes to shoreline and bed morphology, allowing the best solutions to be determined.
