Near coastal morphodynamic, being of high natural variability, is altered by man with the objective to maintain a static status. Thus permanent human intervention as dyking, beach nourishment or jetty constructions are arranged by the coastal management to protect the nature of the coast as well as to save its economic value. For this, innovative instruments and techniques will generate maps of the bathymetry and related environmental parameter to assess the coastal status and the involved processes. This is also necessary for the security in shipping, to minimise the risk of accidents, and for detection of oil pollution that affects the natural and recreational value in a negative way and endangers the use of coastal waters as food supply area. The OROMA team consisting of 6 developers and 4 end users will follow the issue at convert scientific based knowledge into the most actual thematic information distributed via electronic network.
