AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course will be developed on three main areas: Hydraulic Maritime and Coastal Engineering, Marine Pollution and Marine ecosystem monitoring. In particular, they will address the following themes:prediction wave, action on the coasts, numerical models of simulation and forecasting, numerical models for the wave action on the morphology of the coast, wave river mouths interaction, analysis of the formation of coastal currents and their action on the coasts. The pollutant transport phenomena, numerical models for the transport of passive and chemically active substances in the coastal environment. The effects on the ecosystem as a result of input of pollutants, the creation of works, fluvial-marine system interactions, modeling and simulation of the dynamics of these ecosystems, interaction between coastal and ecosystem dynamics currents.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

the student at the end of the course will be able to analyze the sea wave data and using a s Geographical Information System   GIS or other cartography information system to define the principal physical phenomes that can be involved in the propagation of sea state from deep water to shallow water. The principal rules and models to describe these phenomes are described in detail.

TEACHING METHODS

The lesson will be done using power point presentations . The material showed during each lesson will be present  in a TEAMS Classroom

During the course different moments will be introduced to evaluate the comprehension using Wooclap test or similar procedure.

 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

SEA WAVES

Mechanics of wave motions.  Wave and water level prediction. Effect of sea waves along the shoreline, numerical model to forecast the action of sea wave motion along the shoreline. Interaction of river moths and the morphology of the shoreline. The numerical model to evaluate the shoreline currents and their effects on the shoreline and itsmorphology.

SEA POLLUTION

Numerical and physical model to evaluate the dispersion of pollution on the surface and in the sea, with particular attention to the pollution from negative components for the coastal environment (plants and animals life in the sea).

Monitoring of maritime ecosystem

Model to evaluate the spread of pollution from natural and human stress on the sea. Model to analyze the effects on short and long time of the artificial structures on the maritime ecosystem.

 

The international laws on maritime area
