Course Description:
This course provides an introduction to the coastal environment with a focus on engineering and science applications. The course also introduces important concepts important to port operations and design as related to the waterside engineering aspects. Designed for beginning graduate students, the course introduces important topics and physical processes necessary to understand and work in the coastal environment. The course provides the foundation for more advanced study of water wave mechanics, coastal processes, and coastal and port engineering design.
PHY2048 Calculus-Based Physics I, and PHY2049 Calculus Based Physics II, and MAC2312 GM Calculus II are required prerequisites.
