  1. 1. Processes of long-term coastal evolution and their mathematical modelling : Application to the Mozambican coast

    Författare :JAIME PALALANE; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; coastal evolution; coastal processes; mathematical modelling; Mozambican coast; coastal erosion; Macaneta; spit model; long-term evolution;

    Sammanfattning : Different processes in response to the action of natural driven forces and the human interference on coastal systems act together, contributing to shape the coast. Coastal evolution models have been developed as useful tools to better understand the contribution of different processes on observed coastal changes, and also to anticipate future evolution in response to different actions and interventions taking place along the coast.

  2. 2. Geochemistry of coastal Baltic sediments : processes and sampling procedures

    Författare :Sven Blomqvist; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Quantitative and experimental studies on Recent sedimentary processes, with particular reference to element dynamics and mass transport, were conducted in a coastal area of the north-western Baltic proper. A five-year geochemical study reports sediment trap catches, and estimates the flux dynamics of resuspended sediments and primary settling matter. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Coastal Overwash: Processes and Modelling

    Författare :Chantal Donnelly; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; overwash; washover; hurricane impacts; dune erosion; barrier islands;

    Sammanfattning : Overwash is the flow of water and sediment over the crest of a beach system when the runup level of waves or the water level, often enhanced by storm surge, exceeds the local beach or dune crest height. The impacts of overwash on coastal barriers or low lying mainland coasts are striking. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Simulations of Coastal Atmospheric Dynamics and Transport Processes

    Författare :Ragothaman Sundararajan; Dimitris Melas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; coastal atmosphere; dynamics; transport; Lagrangian particle dispersion model; mesoscale model; turbulence; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Meteorology; meteorologi;

    Sammanfattning : The marine atmosphere can be highly variable in space and time, and the coastal terrain plays a crucial role in influencing its properties. These, in turn, determine the atmospheric transport in the coastal zone. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fish in the coastal seascape : exploring ecological processes and connectivity for conservation of temperate fish communities

    Författare :Thomas Staveley; Martin Gullström; Mats Björk; Regina Lindborg; Emma Jackson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; seascape ecology; landscape ecology; seagrass; marine habitats; fish; spatial analysis; connectivity; conservation; Sweden; temperate; marin ekologi; Marine Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : The need to understand patterns and processes in the marine environment has never been so profound as today, particularly as anthropogenic pressures upon coastal regions are drastically affecting habitats and species across a vast range. One approach to further understand these patterns and processes is through the use of seascape ecology methods. LÄS MER
