EGN 410 - Field Methods in Coastal Engineering
Introduction to the concepts, instrumentation, and field methods used to observe physical processes specific to the highly-dynamic coastal environment, such as wind, waves, currents, tides, and sediment transport. Students will gain hands-on experience in operating, deploying, and analyzing data from acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP), electromagnetic current meters (EMCM), and wave/tide pressure gauges, as well as with advanced surveying techniques for monitoring beach morphology (e.g., LIDAR, RTK GPS, and SONAR).
