The following blog post was contributed by Chris Blenkinsopp from the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering.


The 13th UK Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference (YCSEC) was held at Bath on 11-12th April as part of the University’s 50th Anniversary celebrations organised by the Water, Environment and Infrastructure Resilience (WEIR) research group and WIRC @ Bath.  The goal of the conference is to provide a unique opportunity for leading young coastal scientists and engineers working in academia and industry throughout the UK to present their work and network with their peers.  Building on the success of previous conferences, the 13th YCSEC brought over 60 early career researchers and practitioners from more than 30 UK and overseas universities, research institutes and companies together for two days of fascinating presentations and exciting discussions.

This October see the next talk in the monthly 'Water Colloquium' series organised by WIRC @ Bath exploring the breadth of water research being undertaken at the University of Bath.

Title: Four decades of coastline monitoring at Narrabeen Beach, Sydney, Australia

When: Tuesday 20th October at 5.15pm

Where: Room 3.15, Chancellors' Building, University of Bath (Location and maps)

Abstract: Since April 1976, Narrabeen Beach located along Sydney's northern beaches has been continuously monitored, making it one of the longest unbroken records of coastline variability and change world-wide.  In the past 10 years the range of technologies available to continue and extend this monitoring program have expanded rapidly. The range of research applications resulting from this 40 year dataset is diverse.  Following a brief overview of UNSW/WRL and links to various collaborations past and present with Dr Chris Blenkinsopp of the University of Bath, Professor Ian Turner will present an overview of the current monitoring program that his team are continuing at Narrabeen, and provide an overview of recent use of these data to better understand the drivers of present and future coastline dynamics.
