  • Wind, shelf-current and density-driven circulation in Poverty Bay, New Zealand

    Stephens, S.A. (The University of Waikato, 2001)
    This thesis describes the three-dimensional hydrodynamics of Poverty Bay in context of its bathymetry, forcing parameters and typical circulation patterns. The thesis provides a model of hydrodynamic processes in an exposed ...
  • Incorporating high-quality surfing breaks into multi-purpose reefs

    Mead, Shaw T. (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    The studies presented in this thesis have focussed on surfing. Bathymetries, aerial photographs and wave vortex information at natural surfing breaks were measured and collected. These data were applied to understand the ...
  • Nearshore sediment dynamics in a mixed sand/mud environment

    Beamsley, Brett James (The University of Waikato, 2003)
    Poverty Bay, on the New Zealand's northeast coastline, is a high-energy coastal embayment that receives significant quantities of fine, fluvial sediment from two river systems. Examining seabed geomechanical characteristics, ...
  • Wave-induced sediment transport on an estuarine intertidal flat

    Dolphin, Tony J. (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    Waves and tides are the primary processes responsible for sediment entrainment on estuarine intertidal flats, however a detailed understanding of the temporal and spatial variability of wave processes, and the way in which ...
  • 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. ...
