Institute of Coastal Research


Specific data for coastal research result of real-time data collection, of data pools, of aggregated data, of numerical modelling. Specific demands require appropriate generated information based on these data. There are 3 databases provided for various requirements of users, stakeholders and public interest.

Cosyna Logo

COSYNA aims to provide data and knowledge tools to help authorities, industry, and the public to plan and manage routine tasks, respond to emergency situations and to evaluate trends.

Coastdat Logo

coastDat is a model based data bank developed mainly for the assessment of long-term changes in data sparse regions. A sequence of numerical models is employed to reconstruct all aspects of marine climate (such as storms, waves, surges etc.) over many decades of years relying only on large-scale information such as large-scale atmospheric conditions or bathymetry.

Coastmap Logo

coastMap is a database storing several research data by building up a habitat atlas of the North Sea. Being a public database, it serves solid scientific answers to various questions of interested public as well as for specific demands of stakeholders.
