The 3 keynote speakers at MARIDV aspire to bring dune dynamics investigations from different perspectives: direct observations, theoretical and numerical models and stakeholders' applications (societal relevance). This should spark cross-disciplinary discussions on morphological and sedimentary properties/evolution of dunes in marine and fluvial environments, potential biological influences on these dynamics and the importance of dune mobility for environmental management.
