At its core, Geography seeks to provide a location context and practical solutions to address issues that span from the local to the global.
The core of the data set comprises high-resolution wind, wind wave and tide-surge hindcasts mostly for the North Sea. Other areas progressively become available.
Depending on parameter, the hindcast period covers the last five to six decades of years including the most recent ones. The data set was successfully applied for a variety of scientific as well as more practically ori- ented applications comprising, for example, naval architecture or offshore wind farms.
Here the data set and the history leading to its development are briefly described, valida- tion is reviewed, and an overview about recent uses of the data is provided. Eventually access to the data is briefly sketched. Daten aus coastDat wurden erfolgreich sowohl zur Untersuchung wissenschaftlicher Fragestellungen als auch zur Betrachtung von mehr praxis- orientierten Anwendungen z.
Marine scientists are interested, for example, in the understanding of the processes, their variability and changes. Authorities or indus- try may need comparable information for planning, designing or maintaining for example, coastal defences or offshore structures.
Often data to derive such statistics are unavailable for various reasons. In many cases observational records are too short to cover the full spectrum of time scales.
In some cases, sampling in space and time is insufficient or data for the parameters of interest are unavailable. Frequently, longer records are not homogeneous; that is, technical changes, for example in measurement techniques, exist and may introduce artificial variability or spurious trends in the data e.
The coastDat approach was developed to address such problems.
Scenarios of potential future developments in a changing climate are also available, complementing the reconstruction of past conditions in a consistent way. For the North Sea, the coastDat approach was developed over more than 10 years and was successfully applied, for example, for providing assessments of the effectiveness of political measures to reduce chronic oil pollutions e.
Industrial applications comprise, for example, uses in ship design, oil risk modelling and assessment, or the construction and operation of offshore wind farms WEISSE et al. In the following we briefly introduce this data set. In section 2 some background informations are provided, in particular on how the approach developed over time and the major achievements and milestones even- tually leading to the development of coastDat.
In section 3 a brief comparison is made between the first version of coastDat the origins of which are dating back to the late s and a newer version that is gradually and progressively replacing the first one. Validation aspects are touched in section 4 and in section 5 a brief overview of scientific and more practically oriented applications is given.
In section 6 we describe how coastDat data may be located and accessed and in section 7 a short summary and discussion are provided. The objective of such studies was twofold. In some cases hindcasts were performed to reproduce extreme events that caused severe damages.Learning to Be A Sage - Selections from the Conversations of Master Chu, Arranged Topically, Hsi Chu, Daniel K Gardner Preacher: Gone to Texas - Book 1, Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon e-Business Strategies for Virtual Organizations, Janice Burn, Peter Marshall, Martin.

In recent years, sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) has been widely researched in academic domain. However, due to the traditional operational role and the complexity of supply chain management in the cement industry, a relatively small amount of research has been conducted on cement supply chain simulation integrated with sustainability criteria.
