Welcome to the Center for Applied Coastal Research at the University of Delaware. Researchers perform cutting-edge research using laboratory facilities including a precision wave flume and tow tank, large- scale field experiment and as developers and users of state-of- the-art numerical models. Research themes are related to coastal engineering aspects of societal significance. Some examples are:

    • Tsunami propagation and inundation
    • Extreme wave and surge forcing on beaches
    • Beach nourishment project performance
    • Coastal sediment transport and morphodynamics
    • Estuaries, river plumes and wetland processes
    • Coastal groundwater dynamics and solute transport

The Coastal List is a moderated email list for coastal engineers. It was established on September 28, 1995 by Robert Dalrymple of the Center for Applied Coastal Research at the University of Delaware.

The purpose of the list is to provide the over 7100 enrolled coastal engineers/scientists a means to communicate with each other so that items of interest for the community will be disseminated broadly. These items might include job announcements, conference calls-for-papers, new findings and calls for action by the group.
