The 11th annual CIRP technology-transfer workshop was held in Seattle, Washington, at the USACE Seattle District’s Fairmont Room, from December 1-3, 2009. This workshop had the largest crowd ever at such a CIRP event – 40 attendees – and included applications of the Coastal Modeling System at Grays Harbor, Washington; Shark River Inlet, NJ; and Humboldt Bay, CA. Presentations from engineers at the Alaska, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Hawaii USACE District offices highlighted regional coastal navigation projects. Attendees included representation from 10 USACE District offices, 12 consulting engineering firms, Navy, Washington State Department of Ecology, and academia. Special guests included Mr. Jim Walker, USACE Headquarters Navigation Business Line Manager, Mr. Jeff Lillycrop, Technical Director for Navigation, and Dr. John Headland, Distinguished Civilian Board member of the Coastal Engineering Research Board.

Our next technology-transfer workshop is tentatively scheduled for May 20-21, 2010, following the Coastal Working Group Meeting on May 18-19, in New Orleans. Watch the CIRP website for details and to register for this workshop as information becomes available.
