On the one hand in the sense of data collection using a local ARGUS camera system and on the other hand numerical modelling to mimic and predict the morphology.


A first focus point is the application and testing of cBathy code (Holman, 2013), mainly developed in micro/meso tidal area, in a macro tidal environment like Porthtowan.
