Coastal Evolution: Physics versus Biology

Peter Chalk Centre, Streatham Campus, University of Exeter, EX4 4QQ

Speakers: Barend van Maanen

Over recent years it has become increasingly clear that many environmental systems cannot be fully understood without considering both physical and biological processes, as well as their interaction.
Barend van Maanen from the University of Southampton will illustrate the importance of these biophysical interactions by presenting new research on coastal evolution.

In tropical and subtropical regions, mangroves often occupy the area between the land and the sea. These ecosystems interact with physical forces such as waves and tides. The main question is, what are the leading factors driving the evolution of the coast in these regions: physical or biological?

Free parking is available on campus after 6pm, and there are buses that run all evening.
