Effects of complex hydrodynamic processes on the horizontal and vertical distribution of Tc-99 in the Irish Sea
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-10-14)
The increased discharge of Tc-99 from the Sellafield plant following the commissioning of the Enhance Actinide Removal Plant in 1994 was reflected in higher Tc-99 activity concentrations over much of the Irish Sea The ...
Assessment of Tc-99 monitoring within the western Irish Sea using a numerical model
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-05-26)
Water circulation patterns and associated material transport within a highly dynamic system such as the Irish Sea are complex phenomena. Although Tc-99 monitoring programme undertaken by the Radiological Protection Institute ...
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 ...
Storms and surges in Irish coastal waters
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-04-29)
Mechanisms of storm surge formation and severity on the north European continental shelf and, in particular, in the Irish coastal waters are examined in this paper. A numerical surge model was developed and used in combination ...
Regional modelling of the 21st century climate changes in the Irish Sea
An assessment of the complex evolution of climate change signals in the Irish Sea over the 21st century is presented in this paper. Potential impacts of climate change on the local hydrography are explored and interrelationships ...
