Coastal areas are more and more threatened by the sea level rise caused by global warning, and yet 60% of the world population lives in a 100km wide coastal strip (80% within 30km in French Brittany). This is why coastlines are concerned with many issues, of various types: economical, ecological, social, political, etc. To address some of these very important questions, this session will cover various modeling issues related to coastal environments, such as coastal oceanography (including wave modeling), morphodynamics or biology of coastal ecosystems. This session will be an opportunity to present a state of the art of various mathematical fields applied to coastal environment (modeling, statistics, scientific computing, numerical analysis, etc.) and to introduce challenges brought by natural and social sciences.
