  • Assessment of Tc-99 monitoring within the western Irish Sea using a numerical model 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael; Dabrowski, Tomasz (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 ...
  • A comparison of the effects of decommissioning, catch quotas and mesh regulation in restoring a depleted fishery. 

    Hillis, J. Paul; Wiium, Vilhjalmur (National University of Ireland, Galway, 1998-07)
    Possible means of rehabilitating the manY depleted fisheries in European waters now form a topic of great interest and relevance. This paper uses bioeconomic analysis to predict returns for the Irish Sea Nephrops ...
  • Determination of flushing characteristics of the Irish Sea: A spatial approach 

    Dabrowski, Tomasz; Hartnett, Michael T.; Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2011-12-08)
    The Authors devised a novel generic approach to assessing the flushing of the Irish Sea through the determination of spatially distributed residence times and the development of flushing homogeneity curves. Results indicate ...
  • Effects of complex hydrodynamic processes on the horizontal and vertical distribution of Tc-99 in the Irish Sea 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael; Dabrowski, Tomasz (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 ...
  • Influence of seasonal circulation on flushing of the Irish Sea 

    Dabrowski, Tomasz; Hartnett, Michael T.; Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2009-12-16)
    We applied a three-dimensional general ocean and coastal circulation model to the Irish Sea in order to determine water renewal time scales in the region. The model was forced with meteorological data for 1995, a year with ...
  • Long-term inter-annual variability of a cyclonic gyre in the western Irish Sea 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael; Dabrowski, Tomasz (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 ...
  • Regional modelling of the 21st century climate changes in the Irish Sea 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Dabrowski, Tomasz; Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (Elsevier, 2012-06)
    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 ...
  • Storms and surges in Irish coastal waters 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael (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 ...
