Professor Dano Roelvink recognized for global leadership in coastal engineering and research

Dano Roelvink, IHE Delft Professor of Coastal Engineering and Port Development, has received the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) in recognition of his global leadership in coastal engineering and research.

CSDMS is a diverse community of experts who collaborate to promote the modeling of earth surface processes. Members develop, support and disseminate integrated software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins. 

Its annual Lifetime Achievement Award honours outstanding and sustained achievements in earth surface processes modelling research and service contributions to the geoscience community.

“Professor Roelvink has made wide-ranging and influential contributions to the development and application of numerical morphodynamic models. His work in managing the development in particular of the Delft3D modeling system has greatly enhanced the capabilities of the coastal research and engineering communities,” the organization said in the award announcement.

IHE Delft Rector Professor Eddy Moors welcomed the recognition, noting it was well-deserved.

“Dano makes a huge impact not only through his research, but also through his teaching: he helps our students grow into true problem-solvers,” he said.

Professor Roelvink said: “It is an honor and a pleasure to be recognized by this high-level community whose principles of open collaboration I fully subscribe.’’

Earlier recipients include Professor Efi Foufoula-Georgiou of University of California (2021) and Professor Garry Willgoose of University of Newcastle, Australia.
