ALADYN-Workshop 2018, October 17th - 19th
Motivation and Background
Over the last decades, changing
tides have been reported for many locations around the world
having important implications for coastal flooding and erosion.
Scientific studies focusing on both tide gauge and numerical
model data have identified a range of possible driving
mechanisms including but not limited to changes in water depth
or basin geometry, coastal engineering developments, or
variations in tidal and non-tidal interactions.
With this workshop we are targeting an evaluation of the current state-of-knowledge on factors influencing the tidal range change, providing a forum for the open discussion and the exchange of ideas on crucial issues, as well as promoting collaboration across the institutions involved in tidal research and coastal protection.
The workshop is a substantial part of our project 'Analysing long-term changes of tidal dynamics in the German Bight' (ALADYN) and is organised by the University of Siegen (fwu) together with the Helmholtz Institute of Coastal Research (HZG) and the Coastal Research Station Norderney (NLWKN) and is intended to address both researchers and practitioners.

By public transport:
From Altona train station:
Take the S-Bahn (city train) line S1, direction Poppenbuettel, or S3, direction Neugraben, and get off at Landungsbruecken. On leaving the station, do not cross the footbridge leading to the ferries but walk down the stairs to the right, cross the street Helgolaender Allee, then walk up the stairs leading to the Hotel Hafen Hamburg. Continue to the left, then cross the parking lot, go through the passage in the building - the entrance to the BSH is to the left.
Directions from trainstation U/S Landungsbruecken.
From Central Railway Station:
S-Bahn line S1, direction Wedel or Blankenese, or line S3, direction Pinneberg, get off at Landungsbruecken. Continue as described under "From Altona train station".
Directly from the airport:
Take the S-Bahn S1, direction Wedel or Blankenese, get off at Landungsbruecken. See section "From Altona train station" for further directions.
You will find up-to-date information about busses and trains at the homepage of the Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV).
From the Autobahn A24:
At the autobahn intersection Hamburg-Nordost, join the A1, direction Bremen/Hannover. Continue as under "A1" below.
From the Autobahn A7:
Exit HH-Othmarschen, turn to the right -> Behringstrasse, turn right -> Hohenzollern Ring, turn left -> Elbchaussee, straight ahead -> Klopstockstrasse, turn left -> Max-Brauer-Allee, turn right -> Koenigstrasse, straight ahead -> Reeperbahn, turn right -> Davidstrasse, turn left -> Bernhard-Nocht-Strasse.
From the Autobahn A1:
Exit Hamburg-Billstedt, continue in the direction Centrum, straight ahead -> Elbbruecken, straight ahead -> Billhorner Brueckenstrasse, turn left-> Amsinckstrasse, straight ahead -> tunnel, straight ahead -> Ost-West- Strasse, pass the St. Michaelis church to the left, turn left-> Zeughausmarkt, turn right-> Seewartenstrasse, straight ahead-> Bernhard-Nocht-Strasse.
As parking lots are rare around the BSH we highly recommend to use public transport.
