  • Wave dissipation by flexible vegetation

    Riffe, Kassi C.; Henderson, Stephen M.; Mullarney, Julia C. (American Geophysical Union, 2011)
    Dissipation of waves propagating through natural salt marsh vegetation was about half the dissipation expected for rigid vegetation. This low dissipation was predicted by a theoretical model that accounts for bending of ...
  • Wave mixed, wind-generated near-surface shear observed over a tidal flat

    Henderson, Stephen M.; Mullarney, Julia C. (Elsevier, 2012)
    Around high tide over a flooded tidal flat, vertical shear measured 0.13–0.4 m beneath the sea surface by upward-looking Acoustic Doppler Profilers (ADPs) was usually aligned with the wind. However, shear did not increase ...
  • Wave-frequency flows within a near-bed vegetation canopy

    Henderson, Stephen M.; Norris, Benjamin; Mullarney, Julia C.; Bryan, Karin R. (Elsevier Ltd., 2017)
    We study water flows and wave dissipation within near-bed pneumatophore canopies at the wave-exposed fringe of a mangrove forest on Cù Lao Dung Island, in the Mekong Delta. To evaluate canopy drag, the three-dimensional ...
