  • 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 ...
  • Integrated sediment habitat mapping for aquaculture zoning

    Longdill, Peter C.; Healy, Terry R.; Black, Kerry P.; Mead, Shaw T. (Coastal Education & Research Foundation, 2007)
    The benthic environment of the nearshore to inner-shelf within the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, was sampled and surveyed to classify sedimentary environments and benthic habitats. Reef and soft sediment habitats are ...
  • Surf zone currents and influence on surfability

    Phillips, David; Mead, Shaw T.; Black, Kerry P.; Healy, Terry R. (2003-06-01)
    Surfing headlands are shallow and exposed coastal features that provide a specific form of breaking wave allowing a board-rider to ride on the unbroken wave face. The seabed shape and refraction of the waves in relation ...
  • Sustainable management of surfing breaks: case studies and recommendations

    Scarfe, Bradley Edward; Healy, Terry R.; Rennie, Hamish Gordon; Mead, Shaw T. (Coastal Education & Research Foundation, Inc, 2009)
    In a detailed analysis, Small and Nicholls (2003) found that the coastal population is approximately three times the global average and that it is commonly believed that coastal migration is continuing and growing. Lazarow ...

  • 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, ...
