Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you for a special session on "Restoring river-coast dynamics. Barriers and enablers for nature-based interventions" included within the next Coastal Dynamics conference to be held in Aveiro (Portugal) in april 2025 (7th - 11th).

Below you will find the details for this session.


Restoring river-coast connectivity and providing room for coastal dynamics can be considered building blocks of a nature-based solution (NbS) to enhance coastal resilience under present and future climate conditions. This session calls for papers on the restoration of river-coast dynamics, spanning numerical simulations as well as in-situ and remote observations and their application to assess how coastal morphodynamics can become more resilient through NbS.

The session, convened by Profs. A. Sanchez-Arcilla, V. Gracia, M. Espino (BarcelonaTech UPC, Spain), A. Tyler (Univ. Stirling, UK) and A. Stanica (GeoEcoMar, Romania) looks for presentations from on-going projects (such as the REST-COAST and DANUBIUS-IP EU projects) that promote the application of research infrastructure tools (such as coupled models supported by multidisciplinary field observations) to the design and implementation of coastal NbS.

Papers on these and related topics are welcome, including NbS enablers and barriers across scales, covering the multiple co-existing scales typical of coastal dynamics and how they affect NbS performance and associated ecosystem services from coastal wetlands, dunes or seagrass meadows among other coastal habitats that reduce erosion and flooding risks.
