This is a press-release for a new paper – Wave breaking patterns control rip current flow regimes and surf zone retention, published by members of the coastal group which can be accessed here. Research by the Universities of Southampton and Plymouth has found a new link between breaking waves and the hazard posed by rip currents. The… Read More New understanding of rip currents could help to save lives
Written with ECE 2015/16 student Adriana Gallardo: During our second semester on the ECE program, we carried out a two-day boat campaign for our Modelling Coastal Processes class. During the boatwork, we carried out similar activities to our trip in the first semester, collecting data that will be used for validating/calibrating a numnerical model we developed as part of the… Read More Boat Work for SOES 6011 – Modelling Coastal Processes
Guest post by: Jennifer Watts (ECE 2015-16) As part of our degree, ECE students undertake a course on key skills and applied coastal oceanography. A key aspect of this is to learn useful oceanographic techniques, and gain professional experience in applied coastal oceanography. As such, were were tasked to chose, each, as scientific question; plan… Read More Fieldwork in the Itchen Estuary, Southampton, 6th November 2015.
