  • Sediment dynamics of a shallow exposed surfing headland

    Phillips, David (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    A study of the wave, current and sediment dynamics was conducted at a shallow and exposed world-class surfing headland at Raglan, on the west coast of New Zealand to determine the mechanism for sustaining the sandy seabed. ...
  • Site Characterisation and Assessment of Sediments For Beach Renourishment

    Longdill, Peter Clifford (University of Waikato, 2004)
    Marsden Point, Northland, New Zealand, is a Holocene, prograded barrier spit at the tidal inlet to Whangarei Harbour. The development of the Northport timber export port at Marsden Point in late 2000 modified the tidal ...
  • The benthic fauna of Pine Harbour Marina

    Dobbie, Nicholas John (University of Waikato, 1996)
    An investigation into the benthic ecology of Pine Harbour Marina, Beachlands was undertaken over the period June 1994 - February 1996. The primary purpose was to provide a broadscale examination of the benthic fauna of the ...
  • The ecology of bivalves on Centre Bank, Tauranga Harbour

    Hull, Penelope Jane (University of Waikato, 1996)
    An investigation into the ecology of bivalve molluscs on Centre Bank, the flood tidal delta of Tauranga Harbour was undertaken over the period December 1994 - March 1996. The primary purpose of which was to gather quantitative ...
  • The Effects of Turbidity on Suspension Feeding Bivalves

    Teaioro, Iannang (The University of Waikato, 1999)
    This thesis aimed to describe the relationship between suspended sediment concentration stimulating the turbidity caused by natural events or human activities, and the feeding behaviour and energetics of scallops (Pecten ...
  • The Hydrodynamic and Estuarine Physics Of Maketu Estuary

    Domijan, Nenad (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    Maketu Estuary is situated -35 km southeast of Tauranga in the central Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. The hydrodynamics of the estuary was drastically altered when the large Kaituna River was diverted directly to the sea in ...
  • The hydrodynamics and morphodynamics of selected cuspated beaches on the eastern Coromandel Peninsula

    Paton, Lisa (University of Waikato, 1993)
    Beach cusps are concave seaward-facing features that are rhythmic in the longshore direction (Fig. 1.1). They consist of cusp horns separated by lower sloped cusp embayments where the sediment of the horn is generally ...
  • Wave induced sediment transport on intertidal flats in a fetch limited environment, Pine Harbour Marina, Auckland

    Hull, Joanne Margaret (University of Waikato, 1996)
    This study investigates the nature of sediments and the role of tides, currents, waves and winds in driving sediment transport on the intertidal flats and shallow subtidal areas in the vicinity of Pine Harbour Marina which ...
