UNIBEST- Uniform Beach Sediment Transport

UNIBEST (UNIform Beach Sediment Transport) is a software package which contains tools for the computation of sediment transport. The package consists of three models:

  • UNIBEST-CL+ can be used to compute sediment transport and coastline changes along uniform sandy coasts as a result of natural forces or human interference.
  • UNIBEST-DE can be used to compute dune erosion during storm events.
  • UNIBEST-TC can be used to compute cross-shore profile changes during normal conditions (e.g.

Marine Integrated Decision Analysis System (MIDAS)

The Marine Integrated Decision Analysis System (MIDAS) was developed to assist the Marine Managed Areas (MMA) users and managers in understanding the critical factors that influence MMA effects so that they can plan accordingly, to estimate likely MMA effects based on the ecological, socioeconomic and governance conditions, and finally, to advise management plan revisions that will result in optimization of outcomes and outputs.

EcoWin 2000 (E2K)

E2K makes use of an object-oriented programming (OOP) approach to implement ecological models for aquatic systems. The basic underlying structure is that of a spatial (1D, 2D and 3D) framework of boxes, within each of which the relevant biogeochemistry and population dynamics are resolved.

MarineMap - Marine Protected Areas Decision Support Tool

MarineMap (previously named Doris) is a web-based application used for designing marine protected areas (MPAs). Users with a password may view marine geospatial data layers, draw prospective MPAs, share these MPAs with other users (or keep them private), and assemble MPAs into arrays.
