Abstract
General: The general objective is to train students so they can face complex coastal hazards study, analysis, conceptualization and modelling, focusing mainly in coastal cliff recession and tsunami driven coastal floods. Such training provides some of the basic inputs for decision makers and spatial planning of communities prone to such hazards. Specific: Students will get to know the practical theoretical and framework: Hydrodynamic processes acting in the coastal zone which causes main variations inland and the principal geomorphologic and geotechnical characteristics which controls the erosion/deposition regime in sand and rocky coasts, to develop mathematical models capable of simulating its evolution. Tsunami and flood coupled dynamics according to the possible origin, earthquake or landslide induced, of tsunami wave front, the effect of sea bathymetry in the traveling time and energy, the wave arrival and its flood effect caused. Remote sensing and characterization techniques (RPAS, aerial, satellite, ground-based) applied to the aforementioned coastal hazards, as well as the methods and interpretation of mapping such hazards as a useful tool in the land managing process of such kind.
