UWI St Augustine

Two laboratories at UWI St Augustine are involved in the project: the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Geography. One of the research priorities of the Faculty of Engineering focuses on the resistance of habitats to disasters and on coastal development, which is also at the heart of the themes taught by the department.

These two UWI departments are working together on monitoring coastal hydrodynamics and coastline evolution and propose to extend, within the framework of the CARIB-COAST project, their observation network at the Grande-Rivière site north-east of Trinidad.
