ERDC’s Coastal Inlets Research Program, or CIRP, advances the state of knowledge and develops engineering technology for predicting the waves, current, sediment transport, and morphology change at and around inlets. Products of the CIRP improve management and design of coastal inlets through increased reliability of actions and reduction in operation and maintenance costs. The CIRP takes a variety of approaches, including developing concepts and theory for all relevant time scales, numerical simulation, field data collection, and laboratory experimentation.

VICKSBURG, Miss.– Researchers with ERDC’s Coast and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) recently gave a series of two-hour webinars on "Coastal Modeling System Basics."

Fifty people attended the webinars, representing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers district offices, state agencies, consulting firms, and academia from the U.S. and the international coastal engineering.

Serving as the instructor was CHL Researcher Mitchell E. Brown, with assistance from Alejandro Sanchez.

The CIRP plans to offer one more webinar this fiscal year, “GenCade," Sept. 11-13.

For more information on the webinar, to download presentation and example data files, or to register for future webinars, please go to the CIRP website at http://cirp.usace.army.mil/webinars/.
