Coastal areas are typically the most populated and ecologically vulnerable areas. For this reason, it is absolutely necessary to ensure continuous acquisition of knowledge about the systems’ dynamics, as well as being able to predict their evolution, either natural or man-induced.


Coastal Modelling

The use of numerical models, complemented by the implementation of monitoring systems, is presently recognised as the most efficient tool to support decision-making, representing an important added value to designers and decision-makers.

Since 1992, HIDROMOD has been continuously active in this field, with responsibility in several high-complexity studies, conducted in Portugal and overseas.
