  • Keywords:Earth sciences and geography, Electronics and electrical engineering, Construction and building technology, Biology, Social medicine, public health and health care sciences
  • Disciplines:Water engineering not elsewhere classified
  • Users of research expertise:
    • Expertise in coastal zone resources and integrated watershed management. A unifying theme is the influence of physical land use practice and hydrodynamic processes on ecosystems and its integration with coastal structure and morphological evolution. Broad research areas include coastal circulation, hydrodynamics and sediment transport, turbulence and mixing in stratified flows. Of special interest is engineering application to enhance public safety, nature conservation and potential economic growth through cross-disciplinary research in geotechnical engineering, coastal structure-process interaction, coastal erosion and stability, and coastal flood defense.
