Field measurement campaigns | CREST project

Field measurement campaigns

Field measurement campaigns will be carried out to validate the numerical and physical modelling results and to assess the physical processes under real life conditions. Although field tests suffer from the complexity of the real world, they do not suffer from scale effects nor from model effects and are a crucial source of information to be integrated in the overall validation of the methodology.

Five types of measurements are executed:

The following locations are proposed:

 

Koksijde

Mariakerke

Harbour Zeebrugge

Artificial dike
(location to be decided)
