Abstract: 

COWRIE is pleased to announce the release of a best practice guide for coastal process modelling for offshore windfarm environmental impact assessment. This report was produced by ABPmer with HR Wallingford.

 

This report provides an update to existing best practice guidance on the application and use of numerical models to predict the potential impact from offshore windfarms on coastal processes. The report is of direct use to windfarm developers and environmental consultants, providing guidance on the scoping and design stages of the coastal processes part of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). It provides guidance on the requirements for numerical modelling, and how to assess the extent and quality of any numerical work proposed and undertaken.
