Dear colleagues:


We would like to draw your attention to a meeting session on:


Coral and nature-based reefs: hydrodynamics and morphodynamics


at the 2025 Coastal Dynamics Meeting, which is being held 7-11 April 2025 in Aveiro, Portugal.


If your work is relevant to this session, please submit an abstract via the following link:


Session Description:


Coral, rocky, oyster, and hybrid (natural plus artificial) reefs are complex, ecologically-important structures that provide critical socio-economic services, including coastal protection, worldwide. Moreover, reefs are vital for long-term coastal sediment budgets and thus indispensable for the evolution of low-lying islands. Due to the growing impacts of climate change and sea-level rise, along with the drive to address these impacts with nature-based solutions, there is increasing interest to understand the interplay between reefs and coastal hydrodynamics and morphodynamics. Additionally, as climate change continues to reshape reefs, understanding the interplay between wave and water level processes, sediment dynamics, and the resulting mophology becomes imperative. Presentations on all aspects of reef hydrodynamics and morphodynamics, based on field observations, laboratory experiments, and/or numerical modelling, are welcome. Presentations focusing on the management of reef environments and adaptation strategies to mitigate the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise are also encouraged.

Please visit the conference website for more information:


Abstract submission closes Sunday 30 June


If you know of anyone who might be interested who might not receive this notice, please feel free to pass it along.  We are very excited about this session and look forward to your participation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We hope to see you in Aveiro!
