Near shore waves, long-shore currents and sediment transport along micro-tidal beaches, central west coast of India
Coastlines are undergoing constant geomorphologic changes with respect to the incident wave climate. Based on waves measured at 9 m water depth, simulation of near shore wave transformation is done using REFDIF-1 numerical ...
Quantitative estimation of sediment erosion and accretion processes in a micro-tidal coast.
Spatio-temporal cross-shore profiles and textural characteristics are the key parameters for understanding dynamics of the inter-tidal sedimentary environment. This study describes short-term dynamics of the inter-tidal ...
Observation on foreshore morphodynamics of microtidal sandy beaches
(Current Science Association, 2014)
Foreshore morphology and morphodynamics were examined to identify stability of two microtidal sandy beaches, Kundapura and Padukare, along the Karnataka shoreline on the west coast of India during three annual cycles from ...
Freak waves off Ratnagiri, west coast of India
Freak waves are relatively large and spontaneous ocean surface gravity waves whose heights are larger than the expected maximum wave height for a given sea state Wave data collected off Ratnagiri, along the west coast of ...
A study on reflection pattern of swells from the shoreline of peninsular India
Information on reflected surface gravity waves from the shoreline is required for understanding the coastal hydrodynamics. We have quantified the reflected swells (frequency band 0.045–0.12 Hz) from the west and east coast ...
