Mathijs Meijs, a graduate student from the Technical University of Delft (TU Delft) in The Netherlands, is visiting the USGS and working with Guy Gelfenbaum, Chris Sherwood, Peter Ruggiero, and Jessica Lacy. Mathijs will be in Menlo Park, CA, from January 26, 2002, until February 24, 2002. Mathijs and his thesis advisors Dano Roelvink (from Delft Hydraulics) and Marcel Stive (from TU Delft) are working with the USGS on a cooperative study entitled "Morphological Modeling of Coastal Evolution in the Columbia River Littoral Cell." The study involves applying linked models of hydrodynamics, sediment transport, and morphologic change to data sets from the Southwest Washington Coastal Erosion Study (a cooperative research program directed by the USGS and the Washington State Department of Ecology) to improve our ability to predict large-scale coastal change.
