Module aim (aims)
The main goals of the the course are to present the basic knowledge on hazards in coastal environments during the lectures and to provide a practical approach with a field trip to the Polish coast.
Pre-requisites in terms of knowledge, skills and social competences (where relevant)
During the course the folling topics will be presented:
- coastal environments in the context of geoscience;
- the physical processes triggering coastal hazards: coastal flooding by sea-level rise, storms, tsunamis and by coastal subsidnce;
- the effects: shoreline retreat and coastal erosion;
- the impacts of coastal hazards and socio-economic consequences for human societies and adaption by coastal zone management;
- practical approach to assess coastal hazards and coastal protection during a 3-days field trip to the Polish coast.
