Wave and current induced flows in aquatic vegetation canopies
Published: 17 December 2019
Arnold used a combination of physical and numerical modelling to improve understanding on how canopies formed by aquatic vegetation (e.g., seagrass, mangroves) affect coastal hydrodynamic processes. Based on these insights, a widely used coastal engineering numerical model (XBeach) was improved, allowing for more accurate modelling of wave dynamics in marine ecosystems on field scale.
