  • 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, ...
  • The application of equilibrium beach profile theory to coastal hazard identification in the Bay of Plenty

    Pickett, Vernon (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    The Bay of Plenty (BoP) is situated on the north-eastern coast of New Zealand. It is low wave energy sand rich environment that is susceptible to the effects of intense mid latitude depressions and ex tropical cyclones. ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
