Description 
Summary

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