HMSC Research Seminar- The Newport Model Testbed in Support of Fundamental Research for Forecasting US Pacific Northwest Coastal Processes

Speaker: Merrick Haller, Professor, Civil & Construction Engineering, Oregon State University

Topic: The Newport Model Testbed in Support of Fundamental Research for Forecasting US Pacific Northwest Coastal Processes

This talk will presents our research plans and recent results from a recently started partnership between Oregon State University and the Engineering Research and Development Center (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg, MS). The purpose of the partnership is to conduct fundamental research on coastal processes through a combination of numerical modeling, field observations, and laboratory experiments leading to a better understanding of coastal processes, coastal hazards risk, and improved model predictions along the coasts and estuaries of the US West Coast. One of the main focus areas of this project is the development and testing of a coastal storm modeling framework for the US West Coast that will be built out from our Newport Modeling Testbed. At the Newport Testbed we will be testing and improving models for coastal storm hydrodynamics, morphology change, overland flow, and coastal risk at highly energetic coasts. In addition, this partnership will improve our understanding and prediction of dune scarping due to wave runup, and wind-driven transport processes. Overall, the project will include field observations and modeling at several sites on the Oregon coast.
