|−|Numerical models have reached a level of accuracy and detail over the past 25 years that most of the dominant processes in the coastal environment can be quantified. However, the numerical models are tools only for the coastal engineers and planners. This article on ''How to apply models'' will discuss the optimal use of the modelling tools at various stages of a coastal development project. Further, examples are given of projects where proper analysis and modelling have formed the basis for successful coastal projects. | |
|−|==Introduction== | |
description in this article will concentrate on development of high quality and safe artificial beaches, as these are often one of the most important assets of coastal development schemes. It is recommended that the planning of a coastal development scheme includes the following coastal engineering disciplines: | |
|−|*Baseline studies | |
|−|*Development of alternative schemes | |
|−|*Detailed design and environmental optimization | |

Compendium for Coast and Sea - creating a marine science-policy interface
The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an integrated knowledge document about the socio-economic, environmental and institutional aspects of the coast and sea in Flanders and Belgium. As such, it constitutes a one-stop shop for data and information from the Flemish and Belgian marine and maritime research community and experts. The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an initiative of the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and was developed in close collaboration with experts from the research community, government, industry and civil society organisations. The first version of the Compendium was launched in 2013, a second edition was presented in 2015.
