Space-Time Tools for Coastal Studies

Manuel Cobos Budia
Grupo de Dinámica de Flujos Ambientales
Instituto Interuniversitario de Investigación del Sistema Tierra en Andalucía (IISTA)
Universidad de Granada

Sponsor: Dr. George Christakos

In this seminar, I will present some recent projects of the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group (University of Granada, Spain). These projects cover a wide variety of topics such as: wave oscillations in harbors, creation of bedforms in beaches; maritime weather forecast to design breakwater, shelter dikes or to manage a harbor; and a physical model to improve the water quality in estuaries. All these studies have in common that statistics help us to solve the problem in different ways. I will show some of the most frequent mathematical and statistical tools which are commonly used in the daily work of a coastal and maritime engineer. The application of these tools and the results obtained in each project will be discussed.

Manuel Cobos Budia

Manuel Cobos Budia has an MS degree in Environmental Hydraulics from the University of Granada (2013), and this is the last year of his PhD degree focusing on the uncertainty assessment of the space-time estuarine physical processes. Since 2012 he has worked at the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group of the Andalusian Institute for Earth System Research. He has participated in several research and development projects, and is currently applying modern spatiotemporal data analysis in the field of coastal and marine environments.
