Escuela de Verano ENSY2019


We would like to inform you about the upcoming IV International Summer School on Dynamics of Estuarine and Nearshore Systems: From Fundamentals to Cutting-Edge Knowledge (ENSY2019), June 11th – June 21th, 2019. Granada, Spain.The school is funded by Utrecht University (UU) and University of Granada (UGR).
Organizers: M. Díez-Minguito (UGR) and H.E. de Swart (UU)The International Summer School will focus on the process-based modelling of estuarine and nearshore systems, covering from fundamental concepts to advanced applications or current knowledge of these systems. The primary topic of the school will be the study of the estuarine and the nearshore environment with simple mathematical-physical models that govern hydrodynamic, morphodynamic, and ecological processes. The school aims at providing an integral view of actual coastal systems through thematic lectures, and hands-on practices led by international renowned experts.

This Summer School is intended for MSc and PhD students who are interested in physical processes in nearshore and estuarine systems. Our students are expected to be familiar with basic concepts (at least, end level of Sc. or Eng. bachelor) of: hydrodynamic equations, ocean waves, boundary layer properties, mathematical and statistical methods, and computer programming.

Lecturers and Supervisors
Aart Kroon, Andrea D’Alpaos, Arnoldo Valle-Levinson, Hans Burchard, Huib E. de Swart, Manuel Díez-Minguito, Miguel Ortega-Sánchez, Pieter Roos, and others to be confirmed.

The fee is €750 and covers accommodation, food and drinks, registration, lecture notes and a scientific excursion. Attendants will have to cover their own travel expenses.
