Processes in the ocean coastal area affect many aspects of life all around the world. To study hydrodynamical phenomena, pollution distribution, coastal deterioration and interaction with natural and artificial structures we can use both observations and numerical simulation. In the workshop we will focus on mixing processes, sediments distribution, internal waves, instabilities and turbulence, fluid-structure interaction, offshore and onshore wind farms, radar and lidar observation, GIS and corresponding data analysis. Different approaches for numerical simulations and interpretations of results will be discussed. There will be a discussion on how GIS method could be applied for the identification the optimal onshore, offshore wind farm sites in Russia, based not only on wind potential, but also on additional criteria.

- Coastal area hydrodynamical phenomena
- Pollution distribution
- Coastal deterioration and interaction with natural and artificial structures
- Numerical simulations of mixing processes, instabilities and internal waves
- Radar and lidar observation
