CP34D:
Connections Between Coral Reef State, Physical Processes, and Coastlines II Posters

Session ID#: 84672

Session Description:
With more than 100 million people living less than 10 m above sea level and within 10 km of coral reefs, the changes to coral reefs that are being observed around the world will have a direct impact on many coastal communities. Geophysical features such as the complex bathymetry, the health and changing composition of coral reef platforms through time, as well as physical processes such as waves and currents, not only influence the coral reef ecosystem but also the evolution of the adjacent shorelines with ramifications for coastal erosion, flooding and habitability. This session aims to consider what the future may look like for coral reef-lined coasts by exploring the dynamic connections between coral reef health, physical processes (hydrodynamics and sediment transport), the evolution of the adjacent shoreline and coastal flooding. Summaries of current site-specific studies, regional investigations, modeling results, and efforts towards multi-disciplinary and integrated approaches to understanding the current and future state of coral reefs, and how this affects physical processes as well as the adjacent coastline are all encouraged, along with presentations on new and experimental techniques that may improve or change the way these dynamic connections and processes are understood.
