oa CSIR Science Scope - Assessing the vulnerability of South Africa's coasts : natural environment

Volume 8, Issue 2
  • ISSN :



CSIR researchers used mathematical modelling and engineering technologies to better understand the unpredictable nature and possible consequences of events in the ocean environment. The results from the study can now be used to harness wave energy, provide operational oceanographic forecasting (early-notification systems) and shed light on coastal erosion and sedimentation. It also provides decision-makers with information needed for coastal development planning and mitigation strategies.
