Sandy beaches can survive sea-level rise
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-11)
Coral reef islands can accrete vertically in response to sea level rise
(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2020-06-10)
<jats:p>Increased flooding due to sea level rise (SLR) is expected to render reef islands, defined as sandy or gravel islands on top of coral reef platforms, uninhabitable within decades. Such projections generally assume ...
Infragravity wave generation on shore platforms: Bound long wave versus breakpoint forcing
(Elsevier BV, 2020-02-01)
The role of alongshore flows on inner surf and swash zone hydrodynamics on a dissipative beach
(Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
Predicting beach rotation using multiple atmospheric indices
(Elsevier BV, 2020-08)
Impact of a headland-associated sandbank on shoreline dynamics
(Elsevier BV, 2020-04-15)
XBeach-G model simulation of 2.5-m sea-level rise on sand and gravel coral reef island (Masselink et al., JGR(ES), 2021)
Coral reef islands are particularly exposed to the impacts of sea-level rise. They are usually fronted by ‘living’coral reef platforms that protect the island shoreline from energetic wave action. Healthy reef platforms ...
CAPE VERDE BEACH HAZARDS
Coastal Marine Applied Research (CMAR) have been commissioned by Adam Wooler to assess physical bathing hazards at Praia de Lacacao, Boa Vista, Cape Verde. A number of bathing injuries have occurred at the beach adjacent ...
