  • Determining potential for pollutant impacts in dynamic coastal waters: comparing morphological settings

    Pritchard, Timothy Roger (University of Waikato, 2012)
    The coastal focus and beach culture of Australia’s population in general, and the people of New South Wales in particular, mean that coastal systems are both highly prized and subjected to great pressures. The vast majority ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 Hydrodynamic and Estuarine Physics Of Maketu Estuary

    Domijan, Nenad (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    Maketu Estuary is situated -35 km southeast of Tauranga in the central Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. The hydrodynamics of the estuary was drastically altered when the large Kaituna River was diverted directly to the sea in ...
  • 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 ...
