The proposal for measure 2.2 of the BEACHMED-e project includes five public research bodies, belonging to three countries within the European Union, and four different regions which will work together for 24 months. This project aims to study the dynamics of the coastlines and their consequences by focusing on the four scientific research areas shown below:

  1. Characterisation of wave climates and hydrodynamic and weather conditions based on measurements and modelling.
  2. The study of erosion and sea storms in coastal zones.
  3. The study of deterioration processes of artificial coastal protection mechanisms and the development of methods for the monitoring and prediction of their behaviour.
  4. The study of interaction between wave movement and marine biotopes (samples of Posidonia oceanica grasslands)
