Measuring Wave Impact Pressure
Measuring wave impact pressure in coastal regions
For several years now, global climate change has been leading to an increase in severe storms in coastal regions. These storms are affecting the coastal environment more and more, causing severe flooding and tsunamis. To prevent these kinds of disasters, many coastal dykes are fitted with pressure sensors nowadays, enabling continuous field measurements to be taken and wave movements monitored. This is a way to warn and protect endangered regions and their inhabitants at an early stage.
