Bank migration at the Amazon mouth
This study aims to obtain fundamental knowledge of the sandbanks dynamics and evolution by integrating field andmodel data analysis. In order to overcome the data limitations and to take into account the physical processesthat determine the spatial and temporal scales of the sandbanks and its migration rate, the process-based modelDeft3D (Lesser et al., 2004) was used for depth-averaged morphodynamic simulations.
The use of MOGREPS ensemble rainfall forecasts in operational flood forecasting systems across England and Wales
This paper presents research funded by the Environment Agency in which ensemble rainfall forecasts are utilised and tested for operational use.
Forecasting of environmental risk maps of coastal algal blooms

Comparison of soil moisture simulated by HBV96 and estimated from TRMM passive microwave observations for a catchment in Southern NSW, Australia
A framework for integrated flood risk management
Little of the European coast line or land area has escaped human influence, with increasing pressures over generationsof settlement, agriculture, industry and commerce. The pressures include water and flood management activities whichcontrol the extent and frequency of floods and the drainage of water from the land. Internationally, policies and practicein flood risk management are evolving in response to many drivers. See www.floodsite.net.
Stability of breakwater roundheads during construction
The presented study focussed on issues related to the hydraulic stability during the construction of rubble mound breakwaters. During construction the temporary roundheads differ from the roundheads in the final stage. Often a submerged uncompleted part of the breakwater is present in front of the section that reached its final crest elevation. Three-dimensional physical model tests were performed to analyse the influence of the submerged part on the stability of the emerged part.
Storm surge modelling in the South China Sea
Sea level anomalies (SLA) due to different phenomena have been observed in various parts of the South China Sea (SCS). Excluding tsunamis, the largest anomalies are classified as storm surges. Storm surges in the most southwestern part of the SCS are associated with a strong persistent wind blowing along the longest axis of the sea, roughly passing through Taiwan and Singapore.
