Specialist research areas

Geophysical Flows:

 

Coastal engineering

    • the importance of ecosystems and associated structures (e.g. vegetation cover) for coastal flood and erosion risk management

Ocean processes

    • tidal and wave-driven water flows over shallow coastal (vegetated) intertidal zone as well as submerged seagrass beds and larger-scale estuarine morphodynamics

Sediment transport

    • measurement and modelling of sediment erosion and deposition on tidal wetland surfaces and seaward margins

Shallow water flows

    • tidal and wave-driven water flows over shallow coastal (vegetated) intertidal zone as well as submerged seagrass beds

Nonlinear Dynamical Systems:

 

Fractals

    • characterisation of complex vegetation structures to better quantify their interaction with shallow coastal water flows

Turbulent Flows:

 

Shear layer turbulence

    • turbulence around submerged (coastal) vegetation (individual plants and whole canopy scale)

Waves/Free-surface Flows:

 

Surface gravity waves

    • interactions of surface gravity waves with vegetated sea-bed in shallow intertidal zone, quantification of drag coefficient, wave dissipation, and spectra transformation

Wave-structure interactions

    • interactions of surface gravity waves with vegetated sea-bed in shallow intertidal zone, quantification of drag coefficient, wave dissipation, and spectra transformation
