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:
- LCRI Marine
- EPSRC Supergen
- HPC Wales
- Estuarine Processes & Coastal Flooding
- Biophysical Modelling
