The research involved in harbour construction and maintenance can be broken down
into several key areas:

  1. Site selection: The first step in harbour construction is selecting an appropriate site. This requires research into the local geography, hydrology, and oceanography to determine the suitability of a potential location for a harbour.
  2. Engineering: Once a site has been selected, GRID engineers will conduct research into the specific design and construction requirements for the harbour. This involves analyzing factors such as wave action, sediment transport, and tidal ranges to determine the most effective and efficient design for the harbour.
  3. Environmental impact: Harbour construction and maintenance can have significant impacts on the surrounding environment. As such, GRID research into the potential environmental impacts of the harbour must be conducted, including assessments of water quality, marine life, and shoreline erosion.
  4. Maintenance and repair: Once the harbour is constructed, ongoing research and monitoring is required by GRID Team and Partners to ensure that it is properly maintained and any necessary repairs are made in a timely manner. This includes regular inspections of the harbour's infrastructure, as well as research into new technologies and techniques for harbour maintenance and repair.

GRID is a critical component of harbour construction and maintenance, as it helps ensure that the harbour is designed and maintained to meet the needs of its users while minimizing negative impacts on the surrounding environment.
