Long-term inter-annual variability of a cyclonic gyre in the western Irish Sea
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2011-05-26)
The western Irish Sea gyre (WISG) is a cyclonic baroclinic flow around a dome of stagnant water which develops each year during the heating season in the western Irish Sea. Research was carried out to determine long-term ...
Cyclonic circulation in the western Irish Sea in future climate
(International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research, 2011-07-01)
The Irish Sea (IS) is a semi-enclosed body of water on the European Continental Shelf and the Western Irish Sea Gyre (WISG) is a characteristic phenomenon of the Sea. The gyre due to its significant effects on the circulation, ...
Adaptive Mesh Multi-Scale Modelling of Tidal Hydraulics and Material Transport
Multi-scale modelling for structured meshes is achieved by nesting high resolution grids within lower resolution grids. By specifying high resolutions in areas of interest only, computational cost can be reduced. Adaptive ...
A Performance Assessment Protocol for Structured Mesh Multi-Scale Models
Nesting techniques are used to develop multi-scale models giving higher resolution and thus greater accuracy in nested domains. The assessment of model accuracy is therefore important for the successful implementation of ...
Modelling phytoplankton dynamics in a complex estuarine system
The primary objective of this research was to develop a generic methodology for numerical modelling of the water quality within estuarine systems; in particular, this research focused on modelling nutrient dynamics and ...
Irish estuaries: Water quality status and monitoring implications under the water framework directive
The status of water quality of Irish estuaries is reviewed; this sheds light on the rationale behind the design of the national monitoring programme. Relative to other EU Member States, Ireland's coastal monitoring programme ...
