    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 ...
  • Storm-driven changes in rip channel patterns on an embayed beach

    Gallop, Shari L.; Bryan, Karin R.; Coco, Giovanni; Stephens, Scott (Elsevier, 2010)
    This paper introduces a semi-automatic computer algorithm designed to detect rip current channels in video imagery. As a case study, this method is applied to 3.3 years of video data from an embayed beach to demonstrate ...
  • Wind, shelf-current and density-driven circulation in Poverty Bay, New Zealand

    Stephens, Scott (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 ...

  • 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 ...
  • Storm Surges in Tauranga Harbour

    Tyler, Michael Jack (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    Understanding the potential elevation of extreme sea-levels at the coast is important for management of hazards, and adaptation to climate change. This poses challenges for coastlines around the globe, with current pressure ...
