How multi-scale hydrodynamics are influenced by biota to shape coastal environments The best offense against flooding and erosion spawned by climate change may be living coastal defenses that can grow and adapt to changing conditions. While the inclusion of living “ecosystem engineers” to create green infrastructure is promising, robust design with living materials requires understanding how these organisms interact with water and sediments. This talk highlights how complex canopies such as mangrove forest, seagrass beds, or oyster reefs influence the way that water moves and carries sediment.
