Applied Oceanography


The Applied Oceanography division specialises in fundamental and applied research of estuarine, nearshore and shelf sea regions.

Topics of interest include:

  • High-resolution modelling of shelf and coastal processes.
  • Sediment transport and morphological processes.
  • Wave modelling and wave-current interactions.
  • Marine renewable energy - resource quantification and environmental impacts
  • Catchment, river and estuarine processes.
  • Coastal flooding and management.
  • Simulation of dispersion processes including biophysical modelling and nutrient transport.
  • Seasonal, inter-annual and climatic variabilities.

The Centre receives funding from a range of sources including government departments, research councils, the EU and industry, and maintains a powerful network of workstations and has access to the sea going facilities of the School of Ocean Sciences.

Examples of research projects at the Applied Oceanography Division include:
