    Urgent action needed to address climate change threats to coastal areas

    Global coastal adaptations are ‘incremental in scale’, short-sighted and inadequate to address the root causes of vulnerability to climate change, according to an international team of researchers. The 17 experts, including Marjolijn Haasnoot and Gundula Winter from Deltares, have contributed to the paper, ‘Status of global coastal adaptation’, which is now published in Nature Climate Change.

    Wave movements in North Sea more predictable through machine learning

    Accurate predictions of wave movements in the North Sea are crucial in marine and coastal engineering projects. For example, for installing an offshore wind turbine in the North Sea. The better the predictions of wave movements, the better you can plan the implementation of projects at sea. Experts from Coastal Structures & Waves at Deltares have discovered that you can better predict wave movements by linking process-based models to machine learning models.
