  • Are flow-vegetation interactions well represented by mimics? A case study of mangrove pneumatophores

    Horstman, Erik M.; Bryan, Karin R.; Mullarney, Julia C.; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Eager, Christopher Andrews (Elsevier, 2018)
    Arrays of real mangrove pneumatophores (i.e. aboveground pencil roots) and artificial dowel mimics were constructed in a laboratory flume to examine differences in canopy flow dynamics. Compared to the uniform-height dowel ...
  • 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 ...
  • Blind testing of shoreline evolution models.

    Montaño, Jennifer; Coco, Giovanni; Antolínez, Jose A.A.; Beuzen, Tomas; Bryan, Karin R.; Cagigal, Laura; Castelle, Bruno; Davidson, MarkA.; Goldstein, Evan B.; Ibaceta, Raimundo; Idier, Déborah; Ludka, Bonnie C.; Masoud-Ansari, Sina; Méndez, Fernando J.; Murray, A. Brad; Plant, NathanielG.; Ratliff, Katherine M.; Robinet, Arthur; Rueda, Ana; Sénéchal, Nadia; Simmons, JoshuaA.; Splinter, Kristen D.; Stephens, Scott; Townend, Ian; Vitousek, Sean; Vos, Kilian (2020)
    Beaches around the world continuously adjust to daily and seasonal changes in wave and tide conditions, which are themselves changing over longer time-scales. Different approaches to predict multi-year shoreline evolution ...
  • Buried Alive or Washed Away The Challenging Life of Mangroves in the Mekong Delta

    Fagherazzi, Sergio; Bryan, Karin R.; Nardin, William (The Oceanography Society, 2017)
    Mangroves colonize tropical shorelines, protecting coastal communities and providing valuable ecosystem services. Mangroves associated with deltas cope with a very dynamic environment characterized by strong gradients in ...
  • A commentary on coastal research in New Zealand universities

    Kench, Paul S.; Bryan, Karin R.; Hart, Deirdre E.; Kennedy, David M.; Hilton, Michael J. (Wiley, 2008)
    University research in coastal geomorphology, processes and management has made a major contribution to the fundamental understanding of coastal systems in New Zealand over the past 43 years. This article examines the ...

  • Remote coastal monitoring of beach usage on Tairua Beach

    May-Stanley, Bridgette Petra (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    Research that gathers data from public reporting is susceptible to population bias, which arises from a lack of knowledge on the probability of a person’s ability to witness an event. Data collection based on public reporting ...
  • Attenuation of tides and storm surges in coastal mangroves

    Montgomery, John (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    Mangrove forests have been shown to provide coastal protection by reducing waves, moderating currents, stabilizing sediments, and lessening storm winds. However, the interaction between storm surge and mangroves is less ...
  • Understanding the potential exposure of coastal marae and urupā in Aotearoa New Zealand to sea level rise

    Bailey-Winiata, Akuhata Patrick Stephen (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori are Indigenous and have inhabited these islands for the past 700 years. They have an intricate physical and spiritual connection to places and the environment. This is reflected in the Māori ...
  • Effect of exposure on the erodibility of intertidal mudflats

    Nguyen, Hieu Manh (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    Sediments on intertidal flats are exposed during low tides. Under the effect of exposure, the water content of sediments decreases because of the evaporation process, which alters the erosive behaviour of cohesive sediments, ...
  • Investigating groundwater derived nutrient fluxes within Tauranga harbour, New Zealand

    Stewart, Benjamin Thomas (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) is one of the key pathways that connects land and ocean, delivering freshwater, nutrients, carbon, metals, and other chemical constituents to coastal waters. In New Zealand, local Māori ...
