Coastal Zone Management
Stone Mobility, Port Phillip Bay Entrance
Rock material left over from the dredging of Port Phillip Bay may be transported along the seabed by wave and current action. DHI has calculated the movement of the rock material and suggested methods to prevent the rocks from migrating into the nearby environmentally sensitive deep canyon. Furthermore, DHI has suggested dredging methods which may reduce the rock migration.
Coastal Studies Marataizes Brasil
Conceptual design of new shoreline management scheme.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Rapid Impact Assessment Matrix (RIAM) Training Course
A 5-day course designed to provide a background on EIA with particular reference to the importance of the steps in the EIA implementation process. The course also introduces the RIAM method for EIA.
As a member of the European Topic Centre of Water, DHI assists the European Environmental Agency in activities related to marine assessments, hazardous substances, linkages between agriculture and water quality, threats to small water bodies and water accounts.
Coastal Protection Lønstrup
The project is concerned with the stability of the coastline along Lønstrup. Based on LITPACK results, alternative measures for coastal protection is outlined. The coastal protection will accommodate the recreational use of the area which is not possible today due to severe erosion.
The objective of the project is the establishment of an Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan for the whole Iranian coastline. It covers the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Oman Sea. DHI will prepare a methodology for the execution of the project and will furthermore support the preparation of a metadatabase as well as a database to be combined with GIS facilities. DHI will assist with the assessment of the environmental data and give general support to the project partners in the excution of the project. DHI is the only foreign partner in a Joint Venture with 5 Iranian Institutions with Sazeh Pardazi Iran Consulting Engineering Company (SPI) as the Project Manager. The client and funding organisation is the Port & Shipping Organisation in Iran.
Ireland Coastal Protection Strategy
Ireland Coastal Protection Strategy Study. Assistance to the Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resc. for strategic review of coastal protection and examination of policy options.
Malaysia East Coast, Study Tour
Visit by vice minister to Europe to study coastal engineering. DHI was appointed as guide.
Promoting climate change adaptation and reducing vulnerability in Sub-Saharan Africa
The CC DARE programme provides demand-driven technical and financial support to Sub-Saharan African countries. The support is aimed at removing barriers and creating opportunities for integrating climate change adaptation into national development planning and decision-making frameworks.
Sub-Saharan Africa, 2008-2011
Tiran Strait Crossing
A coastal desktop study in order to characterise the coastal stretch in the northern part of the Red Sea. The analysis is based on satellite images and depths extracted from sea charts.
United Arab Emirates, 2007
Course in Shoreline and Environmental Management in Dubai
Course in Shoreline Management Guidelines involving the concept of Shoreline Management in the context of ICZM, understanding of coastal morphology and coastal classification, causes of coastal erosion and shoreline evolution, shore protection methods, concepts for artificial beaches and morphological impact assessment.
United Arab Emirates, 2004
Climate Change Adaptation Case Studies for IDB
Good-practice guidelines for climate change adaptation elaborated through quantitative and applicable case studies focusing on issues like droughts, glacier retreat, sea-level rise and storm water drainage. Dissemination of the results through workshops.
Uruguay, Peru, Equador, Trinidad & Tobacco, 2011-2012
Sea Level Rise Scenarios and Possible Disaster Risk Reductions in Vietnam
Support to IMHEN on developing decision support tools to mitigate impacts of sea level rise due to climate change. Sea Level Rise Scenarios and vulnerability assessments covering shorelines, habitats, natural resources, sector economies and social factors.
