Scientists review several decades of research on the complex freshwater reach where fluvial and tidal forces meet.
Tidal rivers are a vital and little studied nexus between physical oceanography and hydrology.
Fourth Meeting of the Global High Frequency Radar Network; Heraklion, Crete, Greece, 22–23 September 2015
Researchers unexpectedly discovered that tiny shoreline ecosystems act as miniature laboratories in which ocean acidification and its effects play out nightly.
By studying how underwater waves strike the continental slope off Tasmania, researchers seek to uncover the mechanisms that keep the circulation of the global ocean in balance.
Mid-ocean ridge eruptions follow the cycles of tides and Earth's orbital eccentricity, indicating a possible role in long-term climate shifts.
Boussinesq-type gravity waves appear to accurately describe vertical motion in granular flows found in geophysics.
NOAA Coastal Hazards Resilience Workshop—Rip Currents and Wave Runup; Suffolk, Virginia, 14–16 April 2015
The well-known ratio between sand ripple spacing and wave-driven flow oscillations may be dictated by flow dynamics downstream of ripple crests.
A study of water temperature in nearshore environments shows that wave energy was the second-largest driver of temperature changes in the surf zone.
