Description 
Summary

The project introduced investigation results of sea-shore erosion in the region of the sea port of Poti. Computer modelling is used for analysing of sea-shore and river systems. Sea-shore protection scenarios and their influence on the environment have been evaluated with a help of modelling from morphological and economical point of view. For simulation of waves regime and its influence on the sea-shore dynamics UNIBEST-L v404 modelling soft has been used.
