  • 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 ...
  • Effects of surfzone wave transformation on swash dynamics

    Guedes, Rafael Marcondes Carvalho (University of Waikato, 2012)
    Swash oscillations on two natural beaches were measured to show that the shape and magnitude of energy spectra can be largely dependent on processes occurring inside the surfzone. The observations took place on a steep, ...
  • Modelling the long-term morphological evolution of tidal embayments

    van Maanen, Barend (University of Waikato, 2011)
    A numerical model was developed to improve the understanding of the long-term morphological evolution of tidal embayments. Morphological change was simulated as a result of the interactions between hydrodynamics, sediment ...
