Call for Abstracts

Abstracts are invited for case studies, remote & in situ observations, and laboratory & numerical modeling of coastal sediment processes and morphology change.  Topics include:


Coastal bluffs

Barrier islands

Coastal marsh

Inlet & navigation channels

Climate & sea level

Dredged sediments

Vegetation-sediment interaction

Regional sediment management

Shore protection


Cohesive & noncohesive sediments



The Coastal Sediments 2015 conference is the eighth in a series which began in 1977. The Coastal Sediments conference provides an international forum for exchanging information among coastal engineers, geologists, oceanographers, and others interested in the physical processes of coastal sediments and morphology changes.

Coastal Sediments 2015 will maintain the high quality that has made the presentations valuable professional learning experiences and the conference Proceedings a highly-regarded legacy.
