Rhodri Morgan opens coastal engineering event

ICE News

THE WORLD'S premier coastal engineering conference, the 28th International Conference on Coastal Engineering, is to be held at Cardiff City Hall from 7-12 July.

The biennial conference is being organised by the ICE under the auspices of the Coastal Engineering Research Council of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The conference will be opened by first minister for Wales Rhodri Morgan MP, and nearly 400 papers from delegates from over 50 countries are to be presented throughout the week.

The timing of the conference is opportune. Economic growth, especially in coastal zones, and the impact of climate change are heightening interest in coastal engineering in international markets.

Key topics to be discussed at the conference include: legislation, planning and management, beach nourishment, wave processes and wave interaction with structures and coastlines, tidal and estuary processes, dredging, sedimentation and morphology, and flood risk management.
