  • Beach response to a sequence of extreme storms

    Coco, Giovanni; Senechal, Nadia; Rejas, A.; Bryan, Karin R.; Capo, S.; Parisot, J.P.; Brown, Jenna A.; MacMahan, Jamie H.M. (Elsevier, 2013)
    A sequence of daily beach surveys acquired over one month covering an area larger than 100,000 m2, was analyzed to study morphological changes resulting from a cluster of storms. The beach response was highly variable in ...
  • A data-driven approach to predict suspended-sediment reference concentration under non-breaking waves

    Oehler, Francois; Coco, Giovanni; Green, Malcolm O.; Bryan, Karin R. (2012)
    Using a detailed set of hydrodynamic and suspended-sediment observations, we developed data-driven algorithms based on Boosted Regression Trees and Artificial Neural Networks to predict suspended-sediment reference (near-bed) ...
  • Dynamique de la zone de swash : influence de la marée et de la morphologie sur les paramètres du run-up

    Enjalbert, Camille; Senechal, Nadia; Bryan, Karin R.; Coco, Giovanni; MacMahan, Jamie H.M.; Brown, Jenna A. (Editions Paralia CFL, 2012)
    The impact of tide and morphology on run-up parameters in dissipative conditions is assessed, using high-frequency video observations. The infragravity run-up is dominant and shows variations of about 60% during an entire ...
  • The effects of tides on swash statistics on an intermediate beach

    Guedes, Rafael Marcondes Carvalho; Bryan, Karin R.; Coco, Giovanni; Holman, Roy. A. (American Geophysical Union, 2011)
    Swash hydrodynamics were investigated on an intermediate beach using runup data obtained from video images. Under mild, near-constant, offshore wave conditions, the presence of a sandbar and the tidally controlled water ...
  • In-situ geotechnical characterization of mixed-grain-size bedforms using a dynamic penetrometer

    Stark, Nina; Coco, Giovanni; Bryan, Karin R.; Kopf, Achim (Society of Sedimentary Geology, 2012)
    We tested the ability of a small dynamic penetrometer, Nimrod, to infer geotechnical properties of sediment mixtures in the inner shelf. The penetrometer is light and easy to operate, and its operation by scuba divers ...

  • Effects of surfzone wave transformation on swash dynamics

    Guedes, Rafael Marcondes Carvalho (University of Waikato, 2012)
    Swash oscillations on two natural beaches were measured to show that the shape and magnitude of energy spectra can be largely dependent on processes occurring inside the surfzone. The observations took place on a steep, ...
  • Modelling the long-term morphological evolution of tidal embayments

    van Maanen, Barend (University of Waikato, 2011)
    A numerical model was developed to improve the understanding of the long-term morphological evolution of tidal embayments. Morphological change was simulated as a result of the interactions between hydrodynamics, sediment ...
